To My Children

As a parent we never stop worrying about our children, even when they are adults and make their own decisions. We do our best as parents to instill in them the confidence to make their decisions, to steer their lives their way. There comes a time when every parent has to let go.
There is one thing I want my children to always remember, all of them, no matter what, no matter what amount of time passes, how old they become or where they land in life. I will always have their backs, every single time. I will always be in their corner, whether they need a cheer leader, a champion or silent approval, I will always be that person in their lives.
When I became an adult and went into the work world I was shocked to find that everyone didn’t love their parents the way that I did. But then again, not everyone had the same kind of parents I was fortunate enough to have. I can only pray that my children feel about me the way I felt about my parents.
I always knew my mom was in my corner, my dad as well, but his was never silent cornering, his was sometimes loud disapproval of my choices and loud directives to what I should be doing. It was all done with love, I have nothing bad to say about that kind of parenting. However, I strive daily to be more like my mom, if I am just a third as good as she was, then I will have accomplished something.
So I say this to you, always remember I am here, I am never going to judge you, I will always love you and I will always be in your corner.
