Happy birthday mother

It's my mothers birthday to day and I felt it appropriate the I send a special birthday shout out. And throw out a "very sappy post" warning.


Confidant and guardian
Caretaker and friend
Shelter in the storm

Held my hand in darkness
Loved me when I erred
Raised me in faith

Encouraged my creativity
Pushed for my success
Taught me of valiance

...Managed to put up with me for twenty-one years...

ahem...poetry is not one of my fortes. But I hope she knows I love her and appreciate her, despite my sappy bad poetry.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Your "sappy" poetry made me cry for all the right reasons. Thanks! Love, Mom
