Because I love you. . . .

11056558_10153103890667677_4590046403733922164_nEver since you were growing in my womb I have felt a close bond with you. I never felt prepared to be your mom but God must have felt different. He sent me you.
From the moment I saw your little face I knew you were my salvation.
God knew my soul needed healing. What a feeling to hold you in my arms!
You have always been my most precious and beloved. There isn’t a thing I wouldn’t do to always see a smile upon your face. I never like to see you hurting. I’m momma bear and hear me roar to always protect you. I love you. You are blessed with compassion among many other gifts.

I cry alone and five hours later you just hug me. You tell me it’s going to be okay. When I’m at work and I’m worried about a patient case you call me. You remind me to trust my instincts and knowledge.. How is that possible? You just get me. You just know. We are close.
You are my wonderful traveling partner, my silly and sometimes messy housemate, my budding actress, my stellar student, my Netflix/Hulu companion, my twin goof-ball and most important of all my gift from God. I may be a doctor but nothing and I mean nothing in this universe makes me more proud than being called your mother. You are my daughter and I adore you!!

I miss you and I just left you at school but a few days ago. Senior year of college is going to be so magical! The best is yet to come! I’m so proud of you and all you have accomplished this far. Keep smiling!! I love you my beautiful daughter.

Your momma

I place this letter as my blog today to share with the world how much I love and appreciate my 21-year-old daughter. If you have a college age child go ahead and tell them today how much you love and appreciate them. Don’t wait till it is too late. Remember children grow up and become adults. They soon leave home and they might never return if they feel hurt and unloved by you their parents. With this I truly sign off. May your days be blessed.

As plain as daylight…..


This morning I didn’t wake up at 5 am but at 6 am my cellphone rang. It was my lovely daughter calling me from Ireland. She is there studying abroad since January of this year. She called to tell me that the sunset of the night before was beautiful so she sent me this photo.  This is on the university campus of Limerick.. Take a moment to really look at it because I did and I want to share my thoughts with you. What do you feel when you really see it?

The sun this sun shining so bright is about to set. It is so beautiful and reminded me of our higher power and for me that is God.  The Sun gets appreciated mostly when it is about to set. Is it because it leaves such beautiful hues in the sky or is it because nightfall is soon upon us? Why do we fear the night? Why do we think the sun disappears when it hits nightfall? It is still there just not visible to us.  The moon rises and brings us the reflected light from the very same sun.   How wonderful is our God? We are never truly in darkness because we are never truly alone. Take notice he is everywhere.


This is the sunrise from my window this morning.  It’s a new day.  I wokeup and I can see the sun and feel its warmth. Thank you Universe. Thank you.

Signing off and this is what I think.
