In case you haven’t heard it, it’s true what they say about mothers and their children.this is a bond like no other.
You and your sister are attached to me in a special way
I will always feel the need to protect you, to keep you safe.
No matter how old you get, you will always be our babies.
This special bond that will never go away or lessen.
Like a mother bear and her cubs I will protect you fiercely and I will do
not anything possible but everything to keep you from harm’s way.
This is nothing to joke about, this is serious but not something you will understand
until you have children of your own.
If it means that you are mad at me, I will deal with that, my job is to protect you.
I will go to the ends of the earth to do that, as many parents would too.
If you decide to go on this trip and it is alarmingly dangerous and I disapprove,
you will look out your window from the plane
and I will be the person on the tarmac, suited up, in bright yellow and orange,
against the night’s dark sky
flashing my arms, not letting that plane leave.
You do not know this side of me.
It never weakens, it can’t be destroyed.
You can joke and laugh and call me “silly” or “mushy” or say that “I can’t drive”
I’m alright with that
But, do not ever underestimate a mother’s love for her children.
