Bringer of Joy – Thankful Thursday

How often have you been there for me?

And dried up my tears no matter how bitter they be

Perhaps someday I can be like you

Picking children who’ve fallen because that’s what you’d do

Inching closer during times of prayer

Not stopping until your love was felt through the clothing layer

Especially when fears are whispered into the night

Searching for reassurance that everything will be alright

So I hope that I can spread the joy that you did even when confined to bed.

 

Today I am thankful for my mother and for all that she has done, does and likely will do throughout my life. She is an awesome woman.
