May 11, 2014 MOTHERS DAY

I meant to write a lot today.
I didn’t, but
I meant to say,

Thank you God,
for my wonderful,
funny, impatient,
brilliant, beautiful,
sweet Mother.

Thank you God,
for the sweet, perfect
bundles of joy,
you gave me to hold,
to love and cuddle,
to teach how to play,
but to stay out of most puddles.

Now Mother is gone,
and my boys are
so grown,
but I’m still so
grateful for the love
I’ve known.

It’s not over yet,
my life is so full,
of love, of joy,
of blessings from You.
