There’s no denying it — moms are the best.

Britney Spears just proved it by writing the most adorable open letter to her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. The letter is part of a Mother’s Day collection written by stars to their children and published in Time magazine. Tori Spelling, Debbie Reynolds and Amber Rose also wrote letters for the spread.

In the letter she co-wrote with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, Spears imparts some wisdom to her boys about seeking comfort in religion during difficult times.

To Jayden and Preston, You are my masterpieces,” she 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.”

She continued, “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.”

The emotional letter calls to mind Spears’ very public meltdown eight years ago, and all the work she’s put into climbing back to the top of her career since then. Now, Spears has a residency in Las Vegas, and one look at her Instagram is all it takes to know she’s a happy, healthy mom who loves her boys.

“I hope you learn praying alone is when you are most connected to God, and know you are never alone,” she concluded her letter. “He is with you always. I pray you laugh, love and soar through your journey of life.”
