I’m no longer a virgin. I know this is somewhat hard to believe (since for some odd reason you still think I’ve never been kissed before). I was scared to tell you that I wasn’t a virgin anymore and I haven’t been for some time now. You should be proud of me though…I made it through college as a virgin! That’s an impressive feat. Although I could have been sowing my royal oats like many girls once they get to college, I thought about what you and Dad had taught me. You instilled in us values that I will carry for the rest of my life. I was scared, to be honest. I didn’t want to disappoint you. If I was in a relationship and felt that I loved the person, then maybe I would have had sex during college. I didn’t see the need to share my self and my body with someone who didn’t value and respect me as the Queen you taught me I was.
I know how close we are and I was so afraid to break the news to you. I thought you’d be disappointed in me. I know that the culture you were raised in casts stones at girls who have sex before marriage. Just know that the person I shared myself with was well-deserving. Although we are no longer together, I loved him and it was 100% my decision to give him that intimate part of me. I don’t regret my decision…life is about experiencing things, making mistakes and learning from your mistakes.
I just want to thank you for loving me and teaching me to hold my head up high. I refuse to let any man get a piece of these precious goodies if he is undeserving; you taught me that I am beautiful. You reminded me that I am valuable and am worthy so I should conduct myself with dignity. I love you for everything you have taught me. I hope that one day I can be half the woman that you are…you are my everything and because of you I am the woman that I am today.
Although I know that part of you is disappointed a little bit because you’re sweet little Pumpkin is no longer innocent, just realize that you have raised a woman who respects herself and you were an amazing example of what a woman should be. I just want to let you know that I thank you and love you Mommy! My phenomenal woman!
