I Love You Mom


Mom's Favorite Flowers!
Mom’s Favorite Flowers!

You mean so much to me

it is hard to put symbols on the page that can match the intensity of my love

You are my friend

and you are the best kind because you don’t just tell me what I want to hear

but you love me unconditionally when I make the huge mistakes

mistakes you saw coming from a mile away

You are my teacher since before I can remember

but the best lessons I’ve learned from you

were the ones you taught by example

the example of strength & courage

the example of perseverance & adaptability

the example of creativity & resourcefulness

the example of integrity & honesty

the example of hospitality & kindness

the example of love & vulnerability

You walked with me through good times & bad

through pain & illness

joy & happiness

You took this ride with me

and there was never a time that I couldn’t find you

You have always been there

My friend

My teacher

My Mother




On this Mother’s day 2014, I honor the person who gave me birth…who gave me life.  She is traveling in this earth school and has been given much to learn.  She has faced true adversity and come out the other end a stronger, kinder, more loving individual.  She is my rock, my stability, in a world that has not always been kind.

She is brave and she is a survivor in the truest sense of the word.  I owe my decency to her.  I owe my empathic nature to her.  I owe my creativity to her.  I owe, and dedicate my life to her.  I love you Mom…

  1. Wonderful tribute to your Mother Lorrie. It sounds like you are blessed. My relationship is more complicated, but I’m re-learning to love my Mom after pulling away once I realized she is imperfect and rather negative. To Mothers, lessons and learning to love unconditionally.
    Happy Mother’s Day!


    1. Hi Brad. I am happy you are relearning to love your Mom. I had to learn to re-love my Dad so I know what it feels like. I think it helps to know that they probably were just doing the best they could at the time with what they had. Blessings to you…thanks for your support! 🙂


  2. What a beautiful Mother’s day post Lorrie! A true tribute. Thank you for sharing. xo Gina


  3. Thank you for honoring your Mother…it is a Godly command. And by doing this, you honor the institution of Motherhood for us all!
