Life as an adult gets challenging. There are new obstacles that come our way. As a parent, raising a family makes it more tough. There is so much responsibility on your shoulders and it gets tough to battle it with everyday issues. However, the one privilege parents have is their children. In the simplest ways, children can become their hope and strength. The little things they do make you realize it has been worth it and it will always be. Layla O'Shea—who goes by u/radioshea89 on Reddit—posted a heartfelt letter written by her daughter that became her strength to go on.

A mother of three children, O'Shea has had her battles in life. Her post mentioned that she had gotten divorced last year and had moved to Los Angeles. Things must have been tough as is. However, she chose to look at positivity in the realm of darkness. She decided to pursue her dream of becoming a screenwriter. Yet, the journey was not easy. Being in her mid-age where people usually take a step back from a hustle-filled life, she is just getting started.

She mentioned in a previous post that she had finally pursued her dream of becoming the screenwriter she wanted to be. Her post on the r/Screenwriting forum read, “After 10+ years of screenwriting, a produced feature, a best director award for short film and a move in a 2009 Subaru Outback to Los Angeles from Mass last year after raising three kids, today is the day I can finally say I’m a repped screenwriter.” You can see the amount of hard work she put in to reach where she is. She titled it, “A lesson that perseverance can pay off.”



 

Sometime later, she posted a letter that her 23-year-old daughter, Breezy as they call her, wrote to her. Her post read, “ After divorcing last year, I moved across the country to Los Angeles to make a late go of breaking in as a screenwriter. Signed with a lit manager about three weeks ago, and opened this card from my 23-year-old daughter today.” The letter was ideally written for O'Shea's birthday. It was a short note where Breezy wrote, “Hi Mama. You inspire me in so many ways. Socially, professionally, and all the other ways.” Undoubtedly Breezy had been looking up to her mother watching her work hard and pave through obstacles like age, divorce and more.

The letter further read, “I’m proud to call you my mother. The way you support everyone around you makes me strive to be just like you.” u/radioshea89 knew that moment that she won at parenting and her profession as well. Nothing makes a parent feel more worthy and supported than their child’s appreciation. The world may tell them a million things but for parents, it is what their child thinks of them that matters the most. Breezy concluded the letter by greeting her mother, “Happy Birthday Mom. You are a star.” 

Many comments flowed in appreciating and congratulating the user on her accomplishment as a mother and a screenwriter. u/kettlebell43276 said, “It doesn’t get better than that. Love and respect, it’s a keeper.” u/Important_Town_8609 commented, “Way to go! You deserve this fresh new start.” u/cliusn shared, “I hope you become a good screenwriter. And I'm impressed with your daughter’s intelligence in the words she's saying.”
