Thank you for providing love, hope, and strength
When there seemed no reason we should have them.
Thank you for bringing a sense of peace
To the turmoil that we lived in.
Thank you for finding ways
To turn morsels in to meals.
Thank you for singing me to sleep
When I was scared and sad.
Thank you for rescuing me
Even though it didn’t work.
Thank you for tenderly loving me
Through all of the twists my life has turned.
And thank you for being my mom
Not “just anyone” could do it.
Happy Mothers’ Day – May 11, 2014
