    Mother,

    You were there when my heart took its first determined beat.
    You were there when I took my first tentative breath.
    You’ve been there to teach and guide me, every step of the way …

    I love the way you honour my father,
    It has taught me respect.

    I love the way you sacrificed everything for your mother,
    It has taught me to put others before myself.

    I love the way you support your sister,
    It has taught me that family comes first.

    I love the way you love my children,
    It has taught me that love is infinite.

    I love your comforting and caring embrace,
    It has taught me the power of touch.

    I love the way you cherish your friends,
    It has taught me the joy of caring.

    I love the way you provide for so many,
    It has taught me that giving is better than receiving.

    I love the way you love your garden,
    It has taught me the joy of nurturing.

    I love the way you adore your pet,
    It has taught me the joys of uncomplicated love.

    I love the way you cherish music,
    It has taught me to feel and become one with rhythm.

    I love that you smell like a spring morning,
    It has taught me to cherish the smell of the seasons.

    I love the way you admire the shapes of clouds,
    It has taught me to look up when others look down.

    I love the way you write lists,
    It has taught me the importance of planning.

    I love the way you structure your days,
    It has taught me to embrace my spontaneity.

    I love the way you respect who I am,
    It has taught me not to judge others.

    I love the way you make me feel beautiful,
    It has taught me to walk with confidence even when I am low.

    You are here, still gently pulling me when I am unsure.
    You are here, still supporting me when I am afraid.
    You are here, to be part of my journey.
    You are here, to share in the joys of each day.

    You are here.
    I am of you.
    Mother, I love you.
