Letter to My Daughter in Law on Mother's Day
To my Sweet Daughter...
When I was growing up, I always wanted a diamond ring. Even years before I got married, I would dream about my diamond. Your father-in-law and I were engaged using my mother`s diamond ring, but it was not my dream diamond.
Over all the years, I always looked for my diamond. However, feeding four sons, keeping food on the table and having a warm house, took over the need to have a pricey diamond. Therefore, I started to buy fake diamonds. That made me happy, but I longed for my diamond.
Every Birthday, Christmas and Anniversary I looked for the diamond that would make me happy. One day, I looked at you and it came to me, YOU are my diamond. You are beautiful to look at; you are shiny and filled with love.
Â· You have all the qualities diamonds have.
Â· You can cut through a heart and make it filled with joy.
Â· You make me proud to have you in my life.
Â· You are the jewel in this family.
Â· You had the glow of a diamond as you fought for you son to live.
Â· You never gave up your fight for getting better care for Nathaniel.
Â· When he died, your strength kept your family strong.
The way you take care of your children and my son fills me with peace. You take time with Matthew and Timothy that will always teach them how to love. On Mother`s Day, I want you to know how much I love you.
I want you to know that I am so proud of you! And I want to thank you for being the diamond my heart was looking for!
