A letter to my son

Dear Jason,

We did it. The publisher returned the edited book today. I have to be honest with you dear, mom did not ace grade school English. I was afraid to open the document praying there weren’t corrections on every page. I finally did open it and it wasn’t as bad as I feared. She made some general grammatical corrections that I missed. There were some suggestions about moving a few paragraphs here and there to make the story flow better but overall, not too bad.

My dear I always knew I could tell a good story but I was never confident in my writing skills. I suppose this is why publishers hire editors.

I must tell you she was very impressed with you. She wished she had the opportunity to have met you. So dear son you managed to flirt from heaven and found yourself another friend. Good for you.

You know I do not like being praised. I always felt god gave you to me because he knew I would do what was needed in order for you to survive and I did the job he expected. It was my responsibility and I took it to heart. Well dear son, this woman praised me for being a great mother and she was very proud that I had the courage to write your story. She said your story needs to be told so you and I can help other families with children like you.

You know what my response to her will be? My courage, strength and wisdom came from you. It is you who will make the difference. Your beautiful smile and wonderful personality will brighten the world with our story.

I need to say goodbye for now because I have to start making the necessary changes to the book. It will not be long and soon the whole world will know you and how special you were.

I miss you so very much. I love you.

Your loving mother
