To You - From Love

dear son

Dear Son,

I am writing you this letter because I want you to know how much mommy loves you. Which is way beyond words but I will try my best to put it in this format.

Granted mommy can be quite overwhelming, overprotective, see no wrong when it comes to you, and down right out of her mind (as you get older you will think that). I just want you to know that EVERYTHING I do, I do for you. Never in a million years would I ever have thought I would and could feel such love. LOVE exuberates from me to you.

My baby, my son, my firstborn, my first true love, you are worth more to me than anyone else in this world. Yes baby, you even trumped me, your own mother. You are priceless! Archer James my love, you are the best thing to ever happen to me.

As I write this to you, I want you to know a few things of what mommy has planned for you.

Affection

I will give you plenty of affection. Affection to the point that you will wonder if I could give you anymore. And guess what baby boy, I CAN give plenty more! I want you to know the importance of affection. I didn't get much growing up and I want you my dear to have it all. I do not want you yearning for affection. Especially from another woman. No sir, I will provide that for you. Little hugs and kisses. Holding your hands until you let go. Smiling at the little things you do. I will give that to you. So going forward you can give your woman affection.

Trust me son, I've got you all set up for the woman in your life. Even though I will have a hard time accepting it and letting you go, as long as you make your wife happy. I will be happy too. And by the way, you can only have one wife in your lifetime, so make sure she is worth it!

Be a Man

Saying you are one and actually doing it are 2 completely different things! Now, me being your mother I am going to make sure you are being a man versus saying it. No woman wants a boy thinking he is somebody else (a man). If you have this woman thinking you are a man, do not get upset when manhood is thrown at you. That is all I have to say about that. Take heed and figure out who you want to be. A man or a pretend to be. I'll tell you this much, a pretend to be never makes it far. 

If you're in it for getting something out of a female than giving, then you are wearing the wrong underwear my son. Being a man is about giving than getting. Don't you forget that.

Respect

I am going to teach you respect, give you respect, and also make you earn respect. Respect my darling does not come easy (no sweetheart it doesn't). You get that from me because you are my son and because I am your mother. NO ONE else will give you respect unless it is earned. It's a cold world out there my love, and I will make sure you are prepared.

Love

Love is a very strong word and it means a whole lot. Don't ever say those words without meaning it. That other person will hold you hostage of it (I promise you they will). Beside that love is a beautiful thing. Love will bring you up yet it can bring you down. I want you to love with all you have to give but please do not love blindly. That is a dangerous and a devastating thing. Do not think that love will cure all things because it won't. It just massacred things. When love is true and pure no matter what, that love will be unconditional. And unconditional love is the best type of love.

Lesson Learned

My dear son, life has a funny way of teaching you plenty of things. What I want you to know is every journey you go through, there is a lesson to it. It's up to you to see what is presented to you and know how you are going to handle it. 

You know that thing called Karma? Yes baby, she is real and she does not miss anyone. I am going to need you to treat people the way you would want to be treated. It is as simple as that.

Responsibility

As a man and the way society is set up, you will have a lot of responsibilities. Responsibility to be a man. A man that can and will handle his own. A man that no matter what has pride in what he has done (only if it’s good now). A man that know that doing things will get him far and also know that you have honor in your responsibilities. Don't EVER neglect your responsibilities. I will not stand for it so therefore you should never allow it.

Discipline

I am going to need you to discipline yourself. Yes, life is not easy nor is good things just handed to you. You have to work for it. You have to know how too and feel in your heart what is right. Discipline yourself to not let anger get the best of you. Discipline yourself that no matter what things could be worse. Discipline yourself for a better achievement. You can do it!

Your #1 Fan

No matter what you do in your life, I need you to know that I WILL always be your #1 avid fan. I will always have your best interest, I will always be there for you. I know there will be some disappoints to come, no one is perfect. I do not want you ever thinking that I love you any less. You are my world, my sunshine, my life, and my soul. Archer James you are my everything. No matter what you do, mommy will always be here for you.
______________ 

At the end of the day, I am doing this all for you son. I want you to be a proper gentlemen and an honorable person (successful as well). There is just so much mommy can do for you but at a certain point my dear, it is up to you. So make mommy proud. I love you.

Love 
Hugs & Kisses
To Infinity & Beyond

  3. What a beautiful letter. I can surely see the love throughout your words. I never wrote a letter to my kids but I told them I loved them a lot although I didn't hug as much. I now hug my toddler all the time and she doesn't love it much :)
