I just want you to know.

That I’m trying.

And I mess up.

A lot.

But gosh, do I try.

I pray every single day for the strength and wisdom and patience and grace to be the mama you deserve.

And I don’t always get it right.

I yell.

Forget things.

Drop the ball.

Set a bad example.

But the love.

My oh my, the love.

It never, ever wavers.

Not for one day.

One minute.

One second.

The love my heart holds for you . . . it’s all-consuming.

When I look at you, I’m overcome by the precious blessing that you are.

And being your mama . . . it’s a wild, messy ride, no doubt.

But I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Because it’s such a joy.

Such an honor.

Such an immense privilege.

So I know you’ll continue to watch me stumble.

You’ll have a front row seat to my many imperfections.

My humanness.

And I’ll pray that my love shines through those broken, messy parts of me.

Because I just want you to know.

Deep in your soul.

No matter what.

Without a doubt.

That you are loved.
