A Note To My Mother


Flowers


A Note To My Mother

Now that I am a mother of four precious blessings

I can finally understand your selfless sacrifice.

I too now walk the floor with newborns, and feverish children.

I too sit in frustration, as I watch toddlers love and dislike each other in the blink of an eye.

I also have come to say, "Don't call me unless there is blood".

Now that I am a mother of four precious blessings

I can finally understand your "love" of cleaning.

I too vacuum, dust, and pick up after children from sun up to sun down.

I too wash, fold and put endless piles of laundry away late into the night.

I also have come to say, "Your room is not clean the way I like it, go do it properly."

Now that I am a mother of four precious blessings

I can finally understand your "need" to do it yourself.

I too stay up way too late to bake the perfect first birthday cake.

I too spend endless hours learning to sew the perfect something special.

I also push myself out of my comfort zone so they can grow through experience.

Now that I am a mother of four precious blessings

I can finally understand why you "pushed back".

I too fight with my children to be the best they can be.

I too have a child who wants to give up that one moment too soon.

I also spend endless hours praying God will walk with my children as he has walked and continues to walk with me.

Now that I am a mother of four precious blessings

I can finally pass on all that you taught me about being an Amazing Mother.


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM!!!
