Eli and Evan every time I look at you both and catch you smile and laugh my heart skips a beat because you are my infinity and beyond. I want you to know that in this world you will come across many people who are blessed with graceful souls but you will also come across souls who haven’t been loved the right way and those souls might be hurting and taking out on you both. I want you to not let it get to you instead lend a piece of your heart and mind then show them right from wrong as you have been taught. As your mother, I’ve been watching you both carefully and know every little thing about you from your nobility, knowledge, laughter, and to the magical beauty, you both carry around the house. It’s an honor to be your mother I am very blessed for my little Oleas. In life, you will make many mistakes and let me tell you that its ok as long as you LEARN from them because in LIFE we never stop learning and ( there’s always a solution). As your mother, I admit to my mistakes and take responsibility for my actions even if I accidentally hurt someone I say I am sorry. Trust me it will make you a better person than hiding behind lies. You are put on this earth not only to follow your dreams and work hard for them but to also be of service to others in need. Volunteer your time reading to children or elderly at hospitals, give back by helping out a recreation center, shelter, and stand up for injustice for our immigrants, women, LGBT, and education you were not raised to have hatred in your heart. You will once again learn the power of your knowledge and voice you are my children and I know you will make me proud. You know boys, all mothers believe in their children and I am no different, but you also have to believe in your self that’s why every time before we head out to your class Eli I make sure you know how much I love you and repeat your worth. I am loved, I am kind, I have dreams, I work hard, I listen, I am beautiful, I am understanding, I stand up for injustice. As for Evan my little one, right now you are too young to understand but every time I cuddle with you, I give you lots of kisses and hugs and spend time with you dancing and learning just know that this bond is too powerful to be broken. I also wanted to speak about your education and how important it is to be reading, doing the math, being exposed to new technology, languages, experience and take advantage of all the opportunities a good education can provide. Study and dedicate yourself to your homework I guarantee you everything will pay off. Be there for one another you have each other therefore you are never alone. Be patient, think before you act, and live. Remeber that god and myself are always watching so if I end up in heaven don’t think I left and start misbehaving because before you know it those little feet of yours will be grabbed at night lol so behave, my babies because mothers love is never-ending.
I also wanted you both to know its ok to be scared, to be brave, to cry and to feel its all ok
Dedicated to Eli and Evan ❤
I love you when you’re happy, I love you when you’re sad. I love you when you act good, I love you when you act bad. I love you when you win, I love you when you lose. I love you when you act wild and give mommy the blues! I love you no matter what you do because you can’t make me stop loving you! _Laila Ali
Wake up with a good attitude I can and I will 🙂 Learn to forgive and love unconditionally. Don’t let anyone tell you, You can’t do it because you can believe and work for it. You will make mistakes and fail and when that happens get back up.
You don’t have to be perfect but you have to be yourself.
As your mother, I will never stop working hard for you both and dedicate my life to you as long as I am breathing. I won’t stop playing with you, teaching you, joking and laughing with you. spending valuable time with you both. I LOVE YOU ELI AND EVAN
