You Are Enough

To my precious boys.
You are enough.

You are enough for me.  You have been since the moment you joined the world.  You  exceeded my expectations the moment you took your first breath, or walked into the nursery room in your foster mother's arms.  When you're exploring this world, you are enough. When you make me laugh, you're enough.  I love the person you are even without my help.  My job is to help you along the way, but babes....the truth is that you don't need my help, because you are already enough.

You are enough at school.  The schools have enough people fighting for valedictorian.  What they don't have enough of, are people craving knowledge.  You don't need all A's.  You don't need to do extra credit.  Find your passion and explore it.  When else are you going to have a group of people dedicated to your education and there to help you every step of the way?  Experiment.  Ask meaningful questions.  You don't have to take the hard classes unless they excite you.  Be excited rather than overwhelmed.  When you try your hardest, you are enough.

You are enough for your friends.  People are going to disappoint you.  Just remember that you are worthy of love and acceptance.  There are enough people in the world fighting to be the most popular. What the world lacks are people who are genuine and kind.  Find friends that realize how awesome you are.  Treat those friends awesomely.  Be true to yourself and don't sell yourself short.  Even when you're not the most popular...especially are enough.

You are enough in the world.  The world is full of rich tycoons and millionaires.  What the world needs more of is the authentic you.  If you want to fix engines, fix engines.  If you want to join a band, work hard so you aren't sleeping in the streets.  Power is great, and fun...but power without love is dangerous.  Fill the world with love and your light.  That can come in any profession, in any career, and in any form. When you spread love around, you are enough.

You are enough my dear boys.  You always have been.
Your Mom

That was beautiful. And, if you don't mind....I'm just going to tuck this away and share it with my kids when I need the perfect words to share with them. So much of this is relevant to them at this very moment. Thank you!
