Happy Mother’s Day 2021
Mother’s Day comes once a year. Some think that if they buy their mother flowers and a card that they have fulfilled their obligation for the rest of the year. If we would only comprehend a small part of what our mothers did for us as children. How they would literally die for us if needed. We would realize that one day is not sufficient. Mother’s Day should be a time to remind us that we have been neglecting our duties as sons and daughters. This relationship is sacred. Let us honor our mothers.
You Are My Heart & Soul
For standing by me through thick and thin,
For not giving up on me when I didn’t win,
For your patience when I kept pushing you away,
For caring when I said I didn’t need you anyway.
I am grateful knowing…
I can count on your strength,
Ask for your support and know you’ll go to any length.
When I lose my way,
You help me get back on track.
When in pain,
Your comfort soothes and brings me back.
I am lucky because…
When I was sad, you gave me faith and hope.
When I was confused, you taught me how to cope.
When I felt I couldn’t go on,
You carried me long miles.
When I didn’t believe,
You restored my smiles.
Mom, thank you…
For your guidance and the faith you’ve shown,
For giving me a safe place where I have grown,
For showing me how to strive.
Because of your love,
I will survive.
