An Open Letter to: My Kids

There are a few things I hope you learn just through the example I set for you. Here are a few of them for you to remember.

Learn how to forgive. First, forgive yourself. Then work on forgiving absolutely every person you hold a grudge against. Life is so much easier when you let go of these burdens that are not yours. God is faithful and just, let Him do His job.

Learn and live The Serenity Prayer. Allows it to bring you comfort and inner peace.

Love completely. Yes, you will get your heart broken; cherish the lessons and love again.

Find your passion and don’t let anybody keep you from it. You will wake up smiling everyday when you are living and following your dreams.

Never, EVER have I questioned your love for me. Part of being a kid  is hating your parents for something eventually. If you were never angry at me I did it wrong. We’re good-I promise.

There will come a time when I leave this temporary home and go to dwell in the house of the Lord.

Don’t define my life by the moment of my death. Instead remember the life I lived. Remember my big mouth and loud laugh, my ‘no cars in the living room’ rule, my love for God, my quest for a full life, my lessons on budgeting, my dislike for cleaning,  my terrible driving, the way we acted silly in public, the way I loved to sing, and most importantly…never forget…there are no witnesses in the van!!

You are stronger than you know and smarter than you believe.

I love you more than pork chops, rainbows, Nutella, earth worms, sleeping in, morning coffee, vacations, laughter, bubble baths, books, fishing, snowmobiling, s’mores, Little Debbie snacks, and hockey.

—love you more.

Love & Hugs,
Mom

P.S. Tag, you’re it!!

  1. Beautiful.

    Words of inspiration I’m holding on to for me: “You are stronger than you know and smarter than you believe.” Thnx for that much-needed shot in the arm.
