I HOPE SHE KNOWS

 how hard I try to be a good mom.

 

I hope she knows that my anger and frustration never diminish my love for her.

I hope she knows I don’t want her to strive for perfection; I want her to strive to do her best.

 

I hope she knows how much joy she brings me ???ℎ ??? ????? ???.

I hope she knows that her laugh lights up my life.

 

I hope she knows that I will support her no matter her choices, and no matter where life takes her.

 

I hope she knows that she is always worthy, just as she is.

 

I hope she knows that labels, grades, numbers on a scale, and other people’s opinions ?? ??? ?????? ℎ??.

 

I hope she knows that the most important relationship she’ll ever have is with herself.

I hope she knows to do what is right and not what is easy.

I hope she knows that it is a privilege to watch her grow, even though it also breaks my heart.

 

I hope she knows that she is capable, and that ?ℎ? ??? ?? ?ℎ? ????? ??? ℎ??.

 

I hope she knows that every pain, tear, and heartbreak she experiences I feel a thousandfold.

 

I hope she knows that she is loved beyond measure and beyond words.

 

I hope she knows that I will never get it all right, ??? ? ???? ?????? ???? ??????.

I hope she knows.

 

Even though I tell her…
