I am not good at expressing myself personally so I write to you this letter to bid you farewell as I leave home for college. I know that leaving home has been a long time coming since I am already of age but I still feel sad at having to move out. I guess I will miss your cooking and warm, motherly care but as you have told me, I must grow up!
I feel great that I am now moving a step closer to fulfilling my dream of becoming a doctor. I promise you I will do my best to excel in school and make you proud. I will also bring with me the important lessons about life and relationships that you have taught me over the years, most especially the virtues of patience and compassion.
Take care of your health always.
