One of the greatest things about Moms…

May 8, 2011

Mothers are amazing. They just are.
They work countless hours. They do millions of things.

And I can honestly say, if it weren’t for my mom…I wouldn’t be here at all. (Some of you will get that later…)

I recently found a poem I wrote to my mom seven years ago. I’d thought I’d share it with you today. Maybe you feel the same way about your mom: 

There For Me

As a baby you were there for me,
To be what only a mother could be
To change my diaper and wipe my nose,
To give me a bath and wash my clothes

As a child you were there for me
To be what only a mother could be
To clean up after me when I tracked through the hall
To bandage my knee after a fall
To cook and clean and cut my hair
No matter what the need, you were always there.

And now as a teenager you are there for me,
To be what only a mother could be
To help me with algebra again and again…
As my mother, you’ve become my teacher
And as my teacher, you’ve become my friend

If the future I know you’ll be there for me
To be what only a mother can be
Thank you for showing such love and care
And thank you for always being there.
