Day 3: Your Parents

Dear mom,
I just got off the phone with you. I love that we talk just about every day. Your are truly one of my favorite people, even when you’re not; and you will forever be my best friend. A lot of people say that parents shouldn’t be friends with their children; that it somehow minimizes the respect your child has for you. I thank you for not following this advice.
I have the utmost respect for you, overcoming challenges, being a single mother, putting yourself through school and successfully raising a great daughter . But wait…there’s more. I also respect you as a person and as my friend. I respect you as a woman, business professional and as a sister in Christ. You are immensely intelligent and I am honored that I get to benefit from your wisdom and experience.
I could go on all day with the things that I thank you for but the more I think about it it’s best summed up by me merely saying thank you for being you. I  know we get into it with each other, but no matter what we always find our way back into each other’s good graces and never out of each other’s hearts. As you mentioned the other day, that’s a part of unconditional love.
I love you and can’t wait to see you for Thanksgiving!
Love always,
Bernadette/Bernadine lol
