Happy Birthday Mom

She was there to kiss boo boos and cool feverish foreheads

She read bedtime stories and packed school lunches

She sat through endless puppet shows, music recitals and school plays

She went to all the meets and cheered the loudest

She soothed broken hearts and calmed frazzled nerves

She made us study and follow through

She helped us pack and move more times than I can remember

She provided an ear and a shoulder whenever either was needed

She accepted me with open arms

She sat behind me, holding me up during one of my greatest moments but biggest challenges

She offered help and guidance

She gave support and solace

She supported and encouraged

She loved and nurtured

She asked for little in return.

Happy birthday mom.

Thank you.
