A mother tries to provide
her daughters with insight
into the important things in life
in order to make her life as happy
and fulfilling as possible.

A mother tries to teach
her daughters to be good,
always helpful to other people.
To be fair,
always treating others equally.
To have a positive attitude
at all times.
To always make things right
when they are wrong. 
To know herself well.
To know what her talents are.
To set goals for herself.
To not be afraid of working too hard
to reach her goals. 
A mother tries to teach her daughters
to have many interests to pursue.
To laugh and have fun every day.
To appreciate the beauty of nature. 
To enter into friendships
with good people.
To honor their friendships
and always be a true friend. 
To appreciate the importance
of the family.
And to particularly respect
and love our elder members. 
To use her intelligence at all times.
To listen to her emotions.
To adhere to her values. 
A mother tries to teach her daughters
to not be afraid
to stick to her beliefs.
To not follow the majority
when the majority is wrong.
To vigorously follow her chosen path. 
To enter into a relationship with a man
worthy of herself.
To love this man unconditionally
with her body and mind.
To share all that she has learned in life with him. 
If I have provided you with an insight
into most of these things,
then I have succeeded as a mother
in what I hoped to accomplish
in raising you.

If many of these things slipped by
while we were all so busy,
I have a feeling that you know them anyway. 
One thing I am sure of though,
I have loved you
every second of your life.
I have supported you at all times
as a mother, as a person,
and as a friend.
I will always continue
to cherish and love
everything about you
my beautiful daughters.
