My mother


When we first met I was in your belly and so very small. I could tell you loved me unconditionally when you cuddled me with hugs and soft kisses. You stay close to me when everyone else wanted to run. You taught me that God and family is what matters in life. Mom from the time I was born you have taught me to be honest. You have been the most compassionate person I have ever known. You are so patient and always let me choose my own way even if I was being stupid. I'm all grown and can teach my kids all I have learned from you. If i could embrace you today in person I would tell you there is nobody that could take your place because there is nobody who I have loved as long as you.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
