To My Mother

There’s something I don’t say very too off often; I love you.

For the past 19 years, you have raised me to be the man I am today, even though sometimes you say I did it all all my own. That’s not true. I am who I am because of you. I’ve learned everything I know from you. You’ve shown me that working hard is the only way to work, not being lazy and hoping for something good to happen. You’ve shown me happiness comes in many ways, not just TV and Power Ranger toys. Most of all you’ve shown me how to love, to care, and to be there for the ones that truly matter in your life. And you have always been there for me. From track meets to basketball games, award ceremonies to graduation, and beyond, I can always count on you to be there with a open arms.

I never knew what your job title was at The Sun because I’ve only known you as my mom. When I think of you, I see your smile. A smile that that makes me want to smile as well. If you’re happy, then I’m happy.

You’ve done the best you can to raise me, and you still are. I will never forget the times we have together. I still remember the time I played one of my first varsity games and you were there. I cant remember the team we played. I cant remember the final score. I cat remember my stats in that game. All I remember is that you after the game, when I was about to come to tears, you gave me a hug and cried with in happiness.

I never could here you during games, but I knew that you were there, cheering me on. You will always be my number one fan.

Through tough times, we have helped each other get past the obstacles ahead of us. We have always been a team and still are. No one can stop us. No one can break us apart.

As a son, I hope I’ve done my best to make you proud of me

Whatever I accomplish in life, then, now and forever, is because of you. You made me believe. You kept me away from evil. You put clothes on my back. Put food in my body. You sacrificed so much for me. You’ve done so much for me and I hope that I can give back to you one day.

Thank you for loving me, unconditionally.

You’re my mother, and I wouldn’t change that for the world. Merry Christmas, Mom.

Your son,

Nicholas Alexander
