Brev från min son…

Min son…

Min son hade som uppgift i skolan att skriva en hyllning på engelska till någon de tycker om. Han skickade texten till mig i morse innan den lämndes in och tårarna strömmade nerför mina kinder när jag läste. Varje gång jag tänker på den så kommer tårarna igen… Den förmedlar känslor, smärta och kamp. Men framför allt förmedlar den kärlek när den är som starkast ❤️

Kanske man förstår min/vår historia bättre när den kommer från mitt barn, och varför jag aldrig ger upp. Jag vill visa dem att man mot alla odds kan ta sig vidare och att kärleken övervinner allt, och med den här texten så får jag känslan av att jag lyckats med något…

Jag fick min sons tillåtelse att dela med mig av texten som jag för alltid kommer bära med mig… Tack mina älskade ungar för att ni varje dag får mig att andas och mitt hjärta att slå. Det är tack vare er jag fortsätter kämpa för det jag tror på. Att älska till månen och tillbaka är för kort för att beskriva min kärlek till er ❤️ Tillsammans är vi starka och tillsammans klarar vi allt!

Och min son…Tony Stark bleknar bredvid dig!  Glöm aldrig hur stolt jag är över dig, precis som du är! You are my superhero 🙏🏻

Mine to me ❤️

Fellow classmates.

We have all seen the types of movies which are trending nowadays. Superheroes.
We got all kinds of superhero-movies and they are just making more.
People ask me what my favorite superhero is, if it is batman or spider-man, etc.
I never answered their question because I never knew the answer, but now i do.

My favorite superhero doesn’t have superpowers or billions of dollars to make flying metal suits or batmobiles. My favorite superhero is a person.
I´m talking about my mother.

My mother is the strongest and bravest human beings on earth. She cares about everyone and fights for equal rights and to end world hunger and so on. She is amazing.
She got three kids, three kids with different mental disabilities so our childhood might not have been the easiest to deal with but she still managed to do just fine. About 11 years ago, one of her male colleagues threatened her, me and the rest of my family to death. He broke into our house when i was home alone just to kill my mother. 11 years ago was the beginning of a horrible nightmare. Yet again, she still stands on her feet, travel across the country having lectures about her story. She has written two books, one of them is brand new and are blowing up at the moment. Things are going great for her.
In the middle of this nightmare, I haven’t had it easy either. Our economy hit rock bottom, a maniac wants to murder us and I started to suffer from severe depression.
About 4 years ago, in the middle of the night, i stood on top of a tall building. I was about to jump to my death when my cellphone rang. My mom called and said: “Hey, i miss you. Come home please.”
She knew where i was and what i was about to do. I had been outside for hours so i didn’t wake her up when i left. So she woke up, just like that and knew something was wrong.
This was of course really tough for her and I can’t count on my ten fingers how many times she´s been on the edge of giving up but yet here i stand today, prouder than ever and she´s stronger than ever.
Me and my mother have a really strong connection and we always help out each other. Whenever I struggle with something, she´s always there to talk to me and help me out. She has been there for me my entire life and I have been there for her.
She always understands me and listen to what i have to say.
If it was possible, i would give her the world just because she deserves it so much. I remind her everyday for 23 years that i love her and appreciate everything she has done and continues to do. I wouldn’t have made it one day in her shoes, but that’s just because I’m not nearly as strong and positive as her, no one is and that’s why she is a superhero. My favorite superhero.

My mother’s favorite superhero is, by far, Iron-Man. He’s handsome, funny and wealthy.
I know that I might not be as handsome, funny or wealthy as Tony Stark but I wish that I end up being everything she wishes me to be and then maybe I end up being a superhero myself.

She knows how grateful I am, she knows how much I love her and she knows I would do anything for her. I will be there, as she has for me, I will be there until her very last breath.

Thank you for everything you do for me.
Yours truly
