As a woman I haven't been the perfect mother, sister, daughter, friend, wife, or significant other. I'm not the perfect woman that you see on TV, social media, or the magazines. I am not a woman that has it all together, and never made mistakes. I don't always dress up like the fancy moms, that you may see. I haven't always made the best choices, or been the person I should've been.

When God blessed me with the gift to be your mother, my life forever changed. I couldn't be the selfish, inconsiderate, and dare devil I once been.

I choose to try to be a person, that I would like you to be. The person who loves unconditionally, someone who doesn't make reckless decisions, and the person you can always count on.

I was the person who only cared about the things of the world, and satisfying my own selfish wants, baby,please don't be like me, be better.

I was one of the people who wasn't always honest and wanted the easy way out, but you coming into my life, made me walk a straight line, and want to be someone you will be proud to call your mom.

My child, "please don't be like me, I want you to better".

As I watch you grow, and hold you tightly, I will grow to be a better person for you, and also me.
