Dear Mom

By Najah, 826 MSP

A student appreciates and reflects on her mother's kindness over the years.

Level

Grade 6

Type

Social-Emotional Learning

Dear Mom, I want you to know,

You mean the entire world to me. You’re not just my mother, you’re my best friend too. You are always by my side to give me support, confidence, and help. You told me to not be bad and have a good heart like you. And I remember when you took care of me when I was sick. When I needed someone to talk to, you were there for me. You always provided stability within our family. You are everything a mother should be. I love that you are caring. I love that we play basketball together. I want to thank you for taking care of me when I was little. I want to thank you for making my life a good life. Another thing I love about you is that we travel around a lot and I love that.
