By Vincent Cannistraro June 07, Dear sons, congratulations on your high school graduation.
I may not have disciplined you enough, or maybe I disciplined you too much. I know at times, I drove you nuts! I fed you and bathed you and clothed you. I bought you toys. I sang to you, read to you, taught you. You were my boy, my precious, baby boy.
I got up with you to send you to school. I stroked your forehead and hair when you were sick. I knew you were not feeling well, because you let me do these things. You were never very cuddly.
I paid for heat to keep you warm. I stared at you for days, after you were born. I kept you safe. I kept you clean.
I soothed you when you cried.
I let you stay up late and watch TV. Do you know that you mean the world to me? I argued with you as you grew.
You formed opinions of your own. I tried teaching you right from wrong, and to treat others with respect. I hugged you and kissed you at least three times a day, every day.
Remember greeting each other after school, or hugging and kissing me good-night? I wanted to correct the behaviours of my parents, who were, and still are, non-demonstrative.
When you were two, I wrote you a song. I made it up on the spot, while brushing your teeth, to distract you. You were always so active and wiggly. Keeping still for those few minutes required drastic measures! I wrote down the lyrics, and eventually put it to music.
I now sing it to your little cousins. I supported you in most of the decisions you made. I encouraged you to be great. When you were thirteen or fourteen and wanted to come home drunk?
You learned it, too.Turnitin provides instructors with the tools to prevent plagiarism, engage students in the writing process, and provide personalized feedback.

Dear Matthew, Love is not easy to put into words, especially a mother’s love, the depth of which is unfathomable. The physical heft of a letter gives the communication a psychological weight that email and texts just don’t have.
