In honor of Mother's Day, (yeah, you better run out and buy a card today, because it's on Sunday) Time magazine published a series of letters written by celebrities to their kids. One of the letters was written by 34-year-old pop star Britney Spears to her sons (with her ex, Kevin Federline) Jayden James, 9, and Sean Preston, 10.
To Jayden and Preston
You are my masterpieces. From the day I saw the most precious eyes, I believed in miracles to the core. Such a gift God has given me, exploring in your beautiful worlds every day. I pray as a mother I teach you strength and passion to carry through the struggles in the world. Most battles will always be won on your knees. I pray you find your dreams.
God always comes to us in tiny whispers. I pray you always find his whisper and understand the true meaning behind following your inner voice as well.
Always believe in yourself and know anything is possible. I pray dreaming awakens your soul to limitless possibilities. I hope the most precious mysteries of life stay with you always and you are never ashamed of how bright your light truly is. I hope you learn praying alone is when you are most connected to God, and know you are never alone. He is with you always.
I pray you laugh, love and soar through your journey of life.
Besides pictures of her sons, herself in various bathing suits, and Google image search results of food, Britney often posts religious images on her Instagram; her faith is obviously a huge part of her life. In the black-and-white photo of Spears that accompanies her letter in Time, she's reading to her son from a book called Heaven: God's Promise For Me.
That is a very religious letter. It's also inarguably sweet and loving, and it's clear that Britney loves her sons more than anything—one look at her Instagram will tell you that. But once you're there, looking at her Instagram, do yourself a favor and check out the rest of her hilarious, weird, silly, and occasionally very, very Christian posts.
