Mother’s Day


“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” — Abraham Lincoln


You drive me to school every morning

And “cook” me dinner every night,

You look to help me without my warning,

You structured my life and made everything right.


You are the perfect example of a mom

Despite your countless imperfections,

You manage us with ease and still stay calm,

And you find your way without directions.


Now we take a moment to celebrate you,

For all that you have done this year for us,

Because you always manage to come through,

And that is not something to be discussed.


To an amazing mom, Happy Mother’s Day,

Enjoy your day to relax, and don’t delay.
