Happy Mother's Day (9721 hits)


Thank you for loving your son and teaching him that love is full of strength.

For sharing the things you never had and giving that extra tenth.

Thank you for being a sister through all of those struggles you helped your brother survive.

For standing strong in his adversity when he wanted to take a dive.

Thanks for being the favorite aunt when your nephew was living his dramas.

For being the judge, jury and defense: Point blank, no question marks or commas.

Thanks for being the grandmother every man needs for a backbone.

For being the influence that always reminded him of his black throne.

Thank you for nurturing my seed and developing what I helped sow.

For being my natural high on those days and nights that I felt low.
