A beautiful message about love with the power to change the world...

Kindness, empathy, care and consideration. They're the emotions that make us human, but sometimes the world can feel just a little bit lacking in those things.


But what if in every encounter we had with another human being, we remembered that they, like us, are someone's child. What if we remembered to treat everyone we shared something with—be it a mere phone call, a date, or a meaningful relationship of any length—as their parent would like us to. And what if everyone paid us the same courtesy? 

A blog post from a mother to the future wife of her still young son has gone viral precisely because of this sentiment. Whether you're a mother, a father, or simply the child of one, it will no doubt make you tear up. It might also make you stop and think about the power of a kind word, how you'd like to treat others, and how you'd like—and deserve—to be treated in return. 


THE FULL TRANSCRIPT

To the person who falls in love with my son some day. Right now he is still little. And I'm doing my best to guide him to be kind, respectful and to listen, so one day, when you find each other, he can shower you with love, respect and kindness. Because he is growing up faster than I'm prepared for. Right now, he chooses me, to play race cars and read books. He comes to me for help and for snuggles when he's sick. But one day he will choose you. He'll want to spent his days off with you. And his home will be wherever you are. As his Mama, that's all that I can wish for. And to you, the person who falls in love with me son: I promise to love you too. And when that time comes, I will be so proud. Proud of the person he has become. Proud of the person he has chosen. Proud to be his Mum. You've got this.
