AVA in 30 days challenge:Day 24- A letter to your parents

Dear Mom,

I know I'm not the perfect daughter as cliche as that may sound. I have caused you more heartaches and headaches than you could ever imagine. I don't exactly know the answers towards my actions, but I do know that I didn't do them to intentionally hurt you. I guess they were brought up by being a clueless-inexperienced teenager who thinks all her actions are right and all my hormones raging. But even though I cause trouble, do also know that I love you very much. I know how hard it is to raise a child alone and you are a very strong woman for doing so. I admire you and am very proud of the work you do. You're the most hard working person I know in my life and for that I am thankful to God for giving me a mother like you.

We may not get along some times and I think that's normal for a mother and daughter relationship. Maybe because we're also often far away from each other, but Mom, I do care for you. I may not say that a lot and it may not show most of the time, but deep inside I really do care for you and appreciate all the sacrifices you do for me. One day, i'll make you proud, Mom. I'll make all your dreams for me come true. It will be a bumpy road for sure, because we know I commit plenty of mistakes before getting to my goal, but I will try my best to give you my final diploma. The very least thing I can do for you. For all the times you lack sleep, for all the times you didn't eat a good meal just to buy me what I want and for all the times you supported me, THANK YOU, MOM. I love you always and I will make you proud of me one day.

Love always, your daughter
