Dear Maman,

When you laugh, your dimples show and the whole world feels like joining in. When you smile, all the bad melts away for that half a second. When you sing with us along to the radio, everything feels perfect. I'm not sure how I can thank you for being always there for me, for helping me with things like homework or gardening, the small things that I will need later on, for being patient with my stories on the ride home from school and for always supporting and fighting for my opinions. I don't know how I will be able to thank you for telling me to chase my dreams and be myself, for the simply beautiful moments we've had together, and for the games and rituals we've had. The way, when looking up from my book, I would ask you what words mean and the way you would run to a dictionary more interested that me. Maman, your shoulder has been wet so many times because of my disappointments and troubles, you have supported me every single step of the way. And I don't know how I'm going to, someday, move out and leave you. I don't know how to thank you for being such a beautiful woman and thanking you for being my mother. Maybe this will do, these words that are etched into my heart, always:
"Je t'aime Maman chérie"

I love you so much, you can't imagine.

Happy Mother's Day,
