If Only Thank You Could Be Enough

Dear Mothers,

Your tireless labor welcomed us into the world. Life – the most precious gift of all – was bestowed upon us from you. If only thank you could be enough…

Our first cry, before we even knew what we needed, you were there to comfort, love, and sustain us. If only thank you could be enough…

Through every scrape, sniffle, and tear, you cared for us. And although you silently bore your own fears and tears, you tended to ours first. If only thank you could be enough…

After a long, tiring week, when you really just wanted to sleep, you made our weekends special with church and play. If only thank you could be enough…

Throughout feverish nights of coughs and crying, you sacrificed your sleep so we could dream peacefully. If only thank you could be enough…

At the heart of every fond memory of friends and family, Mom, you were at the center, pulling it all together. If only thank you could be enough…

Behind all of our accomplishments, our achievements, there you stood, proudly smiling with love and support, letting us try out our new wings. If only thank you could be enough…

When we found that special someone who would take us away from you, you were there to make sure they were good enough for your baby. If only thank you could be enough…

When we are on our own and realize we don’t know everything, you are always a phone call away to give us the advice we are finally ready to hear. If only thank you could be enough…

Your wisdom, your words, and most of all, your example, echoes in our hearts, reminding us how to love our own families. If only thank you could be enough…

Throughout the laughter and the tears, you have been with us through it all. Everything we are, everything we’re proud of, every moment we have to enjoy – past, present, and future – is all because of your love. If thank you could be enough…

Thank you.
