Letter #02: A Mother’s Worth

It’s not many words in the world more powerful than “mother.” Those six letters can bring joy, just like they bring pain. It can invoke excitement just as quickly as it can anger, depending on the context, I guess. For myself, it means more than I can ever possibly describe, but I will try. I associate the term with immeasurable strength, beautiful patience and infinite wisdom.

You can probably already tell, but the main reason for this letter is to pay tribute to every positive matriarch on Mother’s Day. In my eyes, that day is 365 days a year, but I understand the significance of the holiday. The love between a mother and her offspring is hands down the most beautiful thing God created. More than money, more than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only thing that lasts from the moment you’re born to the second you perish. To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role models, not me.

To the mothers of my beautiful children, there remains nothing but love, adoration and respect coming from my heart. Even with the mistakes I’ve made in my life, you give me reason to smile in a place where they attempt to break your spirit each day the sun rises. I love my babies with all my heart. And the fact you brought them into this world only gives me more and more motivation to write these words. Happy Mother’s Day.

Last but not least, my own mother, Ms. Cita. You are my heart and you are my soul. Please don’t ever forget that. We’ve been through everything one could possibly imagine together. With each obstacle that has come our way, you have handled it with the grace and dignity I can only hope to mimic. Even writing this, it’s tough to come to grips with the fact I cannot spend this special day with you. Like you always preached, a man must accept his own actions – good and bad – and learn from them. And that’s what I’m doing. Mom, I love you more than you will ever know. Probably more than I love my own self. Enjoy Mother’s Day because you deserve it. Also, find comfort knowing your son loves you and misses you like crazy.

To everyone, again, I cannot stress this enough, thank you so, so much for the support. My spirits are sky high thanks to you all. It makes the day pass faster knowing people out there care about you and want you to do well. I pray the letters keep coming in at the volume they are right now, especially the overseas ones. They let me know life still does move on, even if I forget at times. I just ask that you all keep the letters to one page. And keep sending the pictures, too. Some of you are talented beyond belief with the drawings and paintings.

I’ll go ahead and end the letter here, but again Happy Mother’s Day to each and every lady who has raised/is raising her kids the best way possible. Take care. God bless. Live life. Show love.

I can trust my loving Savior
When I fear the world’s alarms;
There’s no safer place of resting
Than His everlasting arms

  11. Samantha says:

    weezy, im 21, my daughter is 14 mnths, im from mi from a small city right above detroit, Ive found a perfect man, the father of my baby, we got into trouble before I became pregnant and he was locked up, when he got out it took slightly over a mnth to find out my daughter was on her way… We struggled hard, we still are, its always one thing after another, but me and my daughter Phalin aka,phay, all day long we dance and sing askong to ur music and for those moments, ur voice no matter wht song, I forget that we r still crammed in my parents house, that we are damn near broke, that I cant get a job to save my life, that I cant afford to go to college, tht our wedding has to wait for years now because of finances, and all of those things tht eat at me day in and day out dissapear, I smile at my daughter who is dancing around the room free of worry, full of life and beauty and I pray that one day I can meet u, one day I can show her who u r, I hope that one day I will be able to attend a concert or write u and actually get through… U hear this alot I know, but no matter how bad life tackles me to the ground, I listen to your art and the constant weight is lifted off of my shoulders just long enough for me to breathe deep. I hope one day my daughter can find comfort in your music the way I do… Thank you for being so driven and smart and full of talent!

    Dear Tunechi

    I absolutely love the fact that you took the time out to write a letter dedicated to mothers. At times we tend to forget the significance of motherhood and the impact that mothers can have on a child. I got pregnant young and although it was unexpected my daughters are my joy and they mean the world to me. I love the YMCMB camp (I remember you guys on the Mo’nique show) my favorite episode thus far. I would love to meet you and your camp one day maybe yall can be guests at this Benefit Concert for Rape Victims that I’m planning in miami. Again thanks for the letter loved your words.
    1 Love

    Love you all!!
    I’m verry fan of you!

  16. Tiffany says:

    Wow, reading this letter is truly amazing. My baby will be a year old coming in Dec, the gratitude and love you have towards mothers whether its your own, mothers of your kids, or anyone in general is amazing! As much as many people would give anything to just meet you, I got something they prob wont see in their life time. I seen you last year at a Vikings game in MN :)!

    Thank you for this letter truly I am touched

  17. Dear Mr. Carter

    I’ve got a hiphop beat for u as a present, you will like it.
    Nobody has the flow like you do.

    I want you to use it man, the only catch here would be: to hear u freestyle to my beat.

    I’m no hustler no famous or rich person, but i love what i do without needing to earn anyone’s aproval or their charity.

    If you Mr.Carter feel the need to explore what my music entales, then please feel free.
    Maybe you and your crew can make the beat better.

    Just a fan that likes the spirit u put in2 your music.

  19. Camila Carter says:

    Weezy, just wanted to say I love you very much, and even not knowing you personally, you are one of the most important people in my life. I know all about you and not get tired to keep up his incredible career. Remain that perfect person you are. Even though I am here in Brazil, do everything to follow you, I’m waiting to show you see here in Brazil! I love you very, very much!

  20. Lol…I had to laugh out loud…cause it’s funny how days move fast.It seems like it was yesterday but it’s been a while now.I believe Wayne now when he said “if you read this letter,this proccess will be shorter than you expected.”

    Nobody is perfect God knows we sin so that’s why he forgive us when we ask for forgiveness.I ran out of words when I heard that he was going to jail,and I admit that it wiped my whole body and heart away like a clean shot from Muhammed Ali.I’m sure all other fans felt the same ways too,only haters were happy.

    I still listen to Wayne’s music and my fav song these days is “BACK TO YOU” and thanks for the best work you do.

    I’m writing a book called “GHETTO TO TOWN,THE JOURNEY CONTINUES” and I’m dying to read ” Gone Till November”. And “Now let me end this message from my heart to you and your fans but never my love.”

  21. Nobody’s perfect God knows we sin.I thank God for creating an inspiration which is you.I will never stop being your fan,God bless ya.ps Lee~Mar!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts! There are, nevertheless, some
    pitfalls when it comes to practice. Once I was a school student,
    I wondered how one should tackle this issue but I’d always encounter some
    questionable answers: go google it or even ask a friend.
    What if my friends do not have enough knowledge or expertise to
    assist me? What when I googled it multiple times and couldn’t find
    the solution? That’s when articles such as this one can provide proper guidance on the situation.
