A Happy Mother's Day Message to my Sons


Before the first of you was born, I had only a vague idea of what you would each bring to my life. But after these many years, I understand that you have brought me the best gifts God ever wrapped.

^*^*^*^*^

Because of you I have had days of glory.
Because of you some were a different story.

^*^*^*^*^

.Because of you I've had days when I nearly burst with pride.
Because of you I have had days when I cried.

^*^*^*^*^

Because of you I've always known where the sun rose.
(Because of you, yes, milk has come out of my nose.)

^*^*^*^*^

Because of you I learned to be strong.
Because of you I learned to be tender.

^*^*^*^*^

Because of you I learned to be frugal.
(Because of you I learned to Google.)

^*^*^*^*^

Because of you I learned to be clever
Because of you I have memories to last forever.

^*^*^*^*^

You are my pearls rubies, garnets, and emeralds, the jewels in the crown presented to me by your dear father, without whom, of course, I could never have written this blog.


I love you today and everyday.

Your Happy Mother

Because of you, I have my wit.
(I even use it quite a bit!)

Because of you I take the bait
and write a poem (not too great!)

Because of you my voice is strong
and I can use it all day long!

Because of you I'll always be
a man who loves his family

To every Dad, and Sis, and Brother
I tell you now, I love my Mother!
