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.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (Will update link when able.)
