I want you to know that I love you fiercely. That is number one.
I am protective to the core and I can't promise that I won't embarrass you someday when I try to fight your battles for you. I really don't want to be "that mom" but goodness, I want to make sure no one ever hurts you. I love you so much.
Right now, if we're in a season of struggle or arguments, please know that today...and tomorrow...and yesterday, there is absolutely nothing I wouldn't do for you. I love you so much.
