I love you, Mother.
I do not tell you often, but I do.
You are the woman who gave birth to me,
Who comforted me in the night,
Wiped my tears away,
And told me everything would be okay.
You are the woman who pleases my dad,
Who makes him happy,
And feels his void.
You make him smile.
A lady, you are, who has given me my siblings.
I thank GOD for you,
For I love my brothers and sisters,
Soul mates to grow with me,
And be on my side,
When mommy and daddy had to be a part
Of the grown up world.
Thank you for bearing them,
For bearing me,
For bearing to love us.
Thank GOD for my grandmother
Who did bear you,
And for all my motherly ancestors,
All the way back to Eve.
In special recognition, I thank the virgin Mary,
And praise GOD for her,
In deep love and appreciation for Jesus.
Surely no other mother could know the unselfish sacrificing,
For bearing a child, than Mary.
Jesus had the best.
My mother, I thank GOD again for you,
Simply because I mean it.
I love you.
Happy Mother’s Day.
May yours be as beautiful as your loving heart.
