I fought for you while you were in my womb.
I love you with all of my heart and I am excited to see what you will do with your life.
You’ll make me so proud.
I will always be here for you;
You have always counted on me; now I need to count on you.
Please work hard in school and college.
Please marry a woman of character and virtue.
Please be a loving role model to your children.
In the meantime . . .
Respect Me—I am your Mother, I deserve it!
Control your emotions.
Work hard to succeed in everything you do.
I am proud of you . . . show me what you got kid!
