Britney Spears has written a touching tribute to her two young sons ahead of Mother's Day on Sunday (08May16).
The ...Baby One More Time star got a headstart on the holiday by penning a letter to her boys, Sean Preston,10, and Jayden James, nine, as part of a series titled Letters From Mom for Time magazine.
"To Jayden and Preston, You are my masterpieces," Britney wrote. "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."
She continued, "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."
In addition to Britney, who shares her sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline, other mothers who wrote letters to their children for the magazine include Debbie Reynolds, Amber Rose, Tori Spelling, Peggy Lipton, and Laila Ali.
