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

My dream is to me in YOUNG MONEY an meet you Wayne. Ive listen to your songs ever since I was 7. I live in d town (Dallas). Same as Lil Twist. But even thought other kids tell me at first I can’t rap coz I’m white. But them I battle a black dude no racis. And I won I am looking forward to going wit the best raper there is in the school. But please leave a reply I promise not to waste it time. One time I all I need. See ya lata.

    Im Really Happy That Your Wout Weezy. You Honestly Dont Know How Much I Love You. I Get Told All The Time That Your Not Good,Or I Shouldnt Listen To Your Music. Simply Because The Choices You Have Made In Your Life. But What The People Who Say The Things To Me Dont Understand Is; I Love You No Matter What. I Love You Because Your Not Afraid To Be Different, You Can Sing/Rap Your Heart Out And The People Who Say You Arnt A Good Person Dont Understand Why You Do The Things You Do. They Dont Understand That Your Probably One Of The Most Amazing People In The World. My Heart And Prayers Go Out To You & Your Family.. I Love You Weezy. Your The Best Baby! Your Number One Fan* -Morgaan.
