I am sorry that I didn't appreciate all that you did for our family growing up. I am sorry for every time I gave you attitude when asked to do something. I am sorry that I did not offer to help more. I am sorry that I didn't tell you "thank you" enough. I am sorry that I took you for granted. I know you felt unappreciated at times and looking back now, I hate that.
We always had clean clothes. We always came home to a clean, inviting house. We almost always (everyone needs a break from cooking once in awhile) had a yummy, hot dinner. We always had the things we needed for school. Most importantly, we always had you.
Now that I am an adult and have a family of my own, I know just how hard you worked and just how thankless a job it can be at times.
I only wish I would have known it sooner. Maybe I would have helped to make your life easier.
Your Very Grateful Daughter
