For my Mom

Hi Mom,
Happy Mother's Day!  I wanted to take a minute and say a couple words to let you know how much you mean to me.  We've always been best friends, you're the first person I call about EVERYTHING no matter how big or small the news may be! I swear you have ESP when it comes to me and will call right as I'm dialing your number.  You always know exactly what it is I need by providing advice to help me to fix an unsettling issue or to just listen to me as I sort through my thoughts.  As we embark on this double journey, you continue to amaze me with your unconditional support.  I knew at such a young age that I was always safe with you and this is still true today.  Throughout the ups and downs of this journey we are on, you help me to see the light in the dark, remind me of what is truly important, and to stop and take care of myself.  You raised me to be a strong, caring, independent woman but to also know you can't survive this world alone and to know when you need the love and support from others.  I try to achieve this balance daily, and have been working to fine tune these qualities over the past couple of months.  I'm really scared with what the next couple of months are going to bring.  To be a first time mom is scary enough, but to bring a baby in the world while dealing with weekly treatments is going to be something that I never dreamt would be a part of my life or something I'd have to deal with.  But knowing that I have you, I know we'll get through it.  Thank you for being by my side through all the doctor appointments, chemo treatments, and for encouraging me when I feel less of a person.  You are my hero and I will always be inspired by the woman you are and strive to be as much like you as possible.  You taught me to see the good in everything and everyone.  I hope to continue to make you proud and to become a mother to Lansing as you have been to me over the last 30 years.

All my love,


  1. Misty rae, thank you so much for my mothers day letter. You don't need to thank me for being a mom. You have made it mostly easy to be your mom, thank you for that. I am so proud of the person you are. You have handled this giant bump in the road with such dignity and courage, I have no doubt you'll get through this journey with the same dignity. I can't wait to see you as a mom. That will be the reward for all this hard work. You'll be a fabulous momma (I see how you mother the pups). I love you so much and am always so proud of you. Love mom

  2. You two made me cry :') It is so heartwarming to see how close yu two are and always have been. Love you both!
