  1. He most certainly knows you Kym πŸ™‚ You ARE the glue…your glue keeps people together, it’s your caring, and it’s what makes you reach out. That’s how we first met, you reached out. You have given him his parameters and this is your reward. What a wonderful, heartfelt and most glorious reminder that parenthood might feel like a walk through hades at times but when your kids give you something as precious as this, you get that reward…you really do :). The most wonderful thing about this beautiful outpouring is that he sat down and thought about it and wanted to create something that you could read whenever you were unable to see eye to eye…HE is building bridges here Kym and for that, you should be SO proud of your parenting. This is that backlink…that little heads up that you did it right :). I love this letter in so many ways I can’t begin to rattle them off but I think I know you a little bit by now after all of the years we have tucked under our belt and of all of the β€œthings” that he could have given you, this is the most meaningful and the most precious. Thank you for sharing this wonderful reminder that we shouldn’t strangle our kids Kymmy, it’s truly wonderful πŸ™‚

    • You most certainly do know me well Fran. It was the best gift and I cried buckets! Children are like diamonds, you chip away at all the rough bits until that wonderful gem (heart) you know is in there starts to shine through. I have printed it out and put it on my freezer. Everytime I look at it I get a big smile on my face πŸ™‚

      • I saved it as well (consider it your insurance, if you lose it, it is here with me πŸ™‚ ) and not only reblogged it, but I pinned it on Pinterest as well. I have a board called “Pause for thought” where I put all of the beautiful words that I come across in my online travels. That is right at the top of the pile :)”

    I would just like to share this most incredibleemail that my friend Kym’s son sent to her on Mothers Day. She has had a lot of problems with this particular son and all through the hassles, the heartbreak and the pain she has steadfastly refused to do anything other than be present and put in the hard yards as a parent. I think that the results are incredibly clear in this email…it is a real reminder that what you put into a relationship is what you get out of it…Please read this, it made me cry πŸ™‚

  3. I hope you don’t mind, I just reblogged this post. I want every mum out there to be able to see that no matter how difficult their relationship is with their child, that at the end of the day all of those hard yards and heartbreaking moments and efforts are truly worth it. πŸ™‚

      • Every mum who has ever gone to battle with a child, who has ever refused to give up on them no matter how much they fought or broke their heart needs to see that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel and that light is SO worth it Kymmy :).

      • I’m not sure how I feel about all that praise Fran. I think most parents would fight tooth and nail to keep their children on a safe path, and knowing that they are truly loved, not necessarily all the time :). Overall I think we try to give our children wings to fly and if they fly into a little trouble then we are the soft nest to fall back into for a while, until, once again, they attempt to fly free. I’m proud of how my boys are developing, but I don’t think I have had too many heartaches, although my patience has been sorely tried at times πŸ˜€

      • I have to say that parents that actually “parent” are the exception rather than the rule these days. You are a wonderful mum and you should accept that it is partly because of your efforts that those boys are as wonderful as they are πŸ™‚

  4. Kym, that’s the loveliest Mother’s Day gift I could imagine . . . choked me right up!
    I think my favourite line is “My mother loves me, but I love her more”.
    This says so much about your son, but even more about you. Thanks so much for sharing; Narfie’s right; every Mum should see this. Hugs to you. ~ Linne

    • Why thank you nieceepoo xx. What a lovely thing to say ❀ I am a lucky aunty too xx and yes I think he is a pretty good egg too, a little cracked here and there but on the whole pretty good πŸ™‚
