Dear Mom

Happy Mother's Day! I am so grateful to be a mother myself, so grateful for this gift of life.

I have attempted to honor my mother with a poem today (stretching my skills, I know!), and although my words seem hopelessly inadequate, I know that she knows I love her more-than-tongue-can-tell. (Can't wait to see you later, mom!)

Dear Mom,

Thank you for embracing this role
and walking through the unknown
The love
The pain
You were barely twenty
In-love, free, yet contained in
The structure of family,
Making your own family

More complicated than we can ever imagine.

Yet you always knew that
Children aren't a mere extension
Of parents' ego

As I am now reminded every day
With children of my own

Thank you for
Teaching me compassion
The power of love and forgiveness
Your own walk through the slings and arrows

My wish for you
My unconditional love,
Is unbridled passion
For life.


For more thoughts on motherhood, my new blogger friend, Keith Jennings, has written a beautiful post entitled: What Makes a Mother a Mother. He took the words right out of my mouth!

  3. This blog has the wonderful view about Mom’s that reading and writing skills not only help us and our children grow as thinkers but they help them achieve the goal of life as well. The online thesis writing services on this forum pull the students from education who need extra support in teaching and extra skills. Such type of information should be promoted on web.

  5. Payday advance suppliers hone dependable loaning strategies, and point not to loan to the individuals who are over obligated, so they for the most part complete acknowledge checks as a feature of their endorsement procedure.

  6. In the event that the borrower can't pay the adjust of the credit right now, he can rollover the advance and take out another advance with more interest.This can turn out to be exorbitant while putting the buyer in risk of getting in route over their head with advance reimbursement commitments.
