Letter To Mom

Dear Marcella Paulette Harris, aka Mom,

Where do I begin? I’m a decent writer, but there are not enough words to describe how I feel about you. I can try. I love your smile, and I get mine from yours. Your smile is worthy of hundreds of selfies like I have of myself. You’re the only woman I trust financially. I really appreciate you helping me to better understand how to handle my money. Thank you for letting me make my own decisions, yet giving me advice whenever I ask for it. Whether I want to admit it or not, you know me better than I do myself. Thanks for letting me do things for myself, such as cleaning; cooking washing clothes; and ironing. How many men in their 20s can say they’re able to do all that…decently. No matter how old I get I am always going to respect and honor you, not just because scripture says I should, but because I want to. I’m proud to be your son, and I’m proud to say you’re my mother. You’re amazing!

Love always,

Your son, David Anthony Harris

By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
