Motherhood: Looking to the Future

What would your child say about you in twenty years? For Mother’s Day, we asked our moms to reflect on their life with their children. As part of a writing activity, they looked forward into the future to imagine their relationship with their children. Here is what they hope their child will say:

“In 20 years…”

Sabrina & Zyaire

… Zyaire will be 22 years old and I hope this is what he will say about me:My mom Sabrina is the best mother in the world. She always strives and works hard to make sure my every need and want is taken care of. My mom is first my mother and forever my friend. My mom loves me unconditionally and I’m forever grateful and honored to have her as my mom. My mom is strong, fierce and fearless. She always knows what to do and say at the right times. There’s no limit to the things my mom would do for me. She has my back and I got her front .

Yashica & Amorion

… Amorion will be 21 years old and I hope this is what he will say about me:My mom Yashica is a strong woman that I watched grow and become everything she said she would. I’ve watched her cry, laugh, smile, and struggle but, she still held her head high. She has always been there for me through good/bad. I love talking to my mother because she gives me sight of things I never knew about and always says the pros and cons of things. And when everyone is against her, she knows I’m always here and always will have her back. My mother is a warrior woman and someday, I will be able to make her proud of the man she raised. I love you mother.

Tamyra & Ja’Maya

… 20 years Ja’Maya will be 22 years old and I hope this is what she’ll say about me:My mom Tamyra is the best mom ever. Me and my mom have a great friendship and I can talk to her about anything. Although she is a mom before a friend, she listens to me and hears me out always. She is so supportive in everything I do whether I’m right or wrong. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if it wasn’t for my mother. Me and my mother may bump heads like every teenage girl and her mother, nothing’s perfect but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. My mom is like my best friend and I am so very thankful for her. She tried the very best that she could and that is more than enough for me.
