My Mother

Like no one ever had

My mother cared for me

Embodied a love I continuously seek

Within myself and others

Because she made me believe

Life’s better than it can seem

Saw the forest for the trees

I will always strive to be

As warm and ardent as she

6.12.18: Today is my mother’s 50th birthday. Each year I think of what to say but I have yet to find the right words to tell her how much I appreciate the life she has given me. This year I have also been thinking about how little I have appreciated all she has accomplished in 50 years as an individual. She is a lovely painter. She got herself through college even with two children. She raised two very independent and highly capable adults. She has fought tough battles in life, many of which I am probably unaware. I believe I will always be searching for the best “thank you”.
