Momma, I Love You

Dear Momma,

We've come a long, long way, momma--from fear and starvation to hope and happiness. And through it all, it is because of you--because you refused to let go, to be blinded by war and wreckage, hatred and evil. You see what others overlook. You feel when so many cannot--which is why, momma, in a world of kings, you are my queen.

I'm writing to you, momma, 9000 miles away--but no matter the distance, no matter the oceans or islands that keep us apart, no matter the time or tides that divide us, I am yours and you are mine. I breathe because of you. I walk upon this earth because you are my guide--at every turn and every corner, land, sea or air, you are there for me. And I promise, momma, that when you shall need me, I will be there for you, too.

Through the years, you've shaped me to become the man I am today. You've molded me to be not like you in face and figure--but in thought and theory to challenge like you, to defy those that cannot define the difference between right and wrong--and to prove to so many that, like you, small yet strong, odds can be beaten. Momma, you are my hero.

Your smile makes me smile in my time of need. Your voice--even though at times I cannot hear, resonates within me everywhere I go, telling me how much you care. And because of that, I keep pushing forward--knowing that whatever I do, where ever I go or how lost I get, in the end, I will always find you. That, momma, is more than any son can ever ask for.

Momma, on this day and everyday, know that I love you with every beat of my heart--and I thank you for all that you are and all that you've given to me--and the world.

Your son, always,

Oh, Ron, your words are absolutely perfect, beautiful and so full of love. You have the luckiest of Mommas. She is blessed to have a son like you. I love the picture of you two together. Aren't you just so blessed that God has given you to such a courageous and loving mom! I say "Happy Mother's Day to Ron's Mom. Thank you for raising such a wonderful son.

Dear Ron,

Your eloquently written heartfelt words to your mother are simply put - Beautiful!
She has indeed raised a most loving, grateful & compassionate son. Your mother has much to be proud of & no doubt she is.
As I was reading this letter of love to your mother, I felt my eyes well. I felt the love too!
Your mother is so blessed to have had a son such as you.
Take Care Ron

Way to make a momma cry, Ron. That was beautifully expressed, and I can't imagine the love and pride your Mom has for you. You are both blessed to have each other! Be well ☮

Very sweet, Ron, the kind of words any mom would love to hear but rarely does. And I love the photo!

Oh Ron! You're a great guy with a lovely heart and both you and your mom are extremely lucky to have each other. I don't have the good fortune to have my mother here with me but I know how much she means.

Lovely piece and I'm sure your mother is extremely proud to have you as your son.

Much love,
