Do Not Wish To Change Anything

Dear Mom, I once wished for a motherwith lighter skin. I once wished for a mother who looked identical to me. I once wished fora different mother. I wished things I wish I didn’t mean. I thought your mother had to be identical figures. But that is not true. I was completely wrongand I tear up when I think about it. You are the most beautiful mother ever. Your warm, brown skin, is so beautiful, I wish to never change it. I’m grateful to have differences and similarities with you.I would not change one aspect of you for anything. You are the woman who raised me.Taught me to be the best woman I can possibly be. Thank you for everything. I love you mom.
