Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mother’s Birthday and I felt that this poem would be the best way to describe my feelings for her. Now that I’m a mother, I truly understand and appreciate everything she has done for me and continues to do for me and for my little family (especially JD). She is the best Mother a daughter could ever ask for!

My Miracle Mother
Mom, I look at you
and see a walking miracle.
Your unfailing love without limit,
your ability to soothe my every hurt,
the way you are on duty, unselfishly,
every hour, every day,
makes me so grateful
that I am yours, and you are mine.
With open arms and open heart,
with enduring patience and inner strength,
you gave so much for me,
sometimes at your expense.
You are my teacher,
my comforter, my encourager,
appreciating all, forgiving all.
Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom,
but I don’t now, and I never will again.
I know that everything I am today
relates to you and your loving care.
I gaze in wonder
as I watch you being you—
my miracle, my mother.
