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
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…

What lovely words!
Thank you so much Sophie! Have a beautiful day!!
Ah, you too!
So, so sweet!!
🙂 Many blessings to you!
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!
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! 🙂
I agree and understand that they did the best they could. You’re welcome!
