** My HERO **

To the most beautiful woman in my life!
My mum,
my friend,
my mentor,
you are my inspiration!
I LOVE YOU


I wasn't always perfect, I wasn't always ideal

I didn't always clean my room, or eat all of my meal

I stayed out too late, I did things that I knew I shouldn't

I wanted to test my wings, and got mad when I couldn't

We are so much alike, my mother and I

We argued sometimes, and didn't always see eye to eye

I couldn't wait to be out on my own

To try out the ropes, to be fully grown

You were never afraid to speak what you thought

You knew what I'd done, well before I got caught

It wasn't until I was out of your home, I realized what I missed,

when I started to roam
A friend, a companion, who would always defend

Giving love unconditionally, a love that didn't end

Even when I wasn't perfect, ideal, or good

When the going got tough, I knew I always could

Turn to my mum, with her good advice

Even then I turned to you, as I became a wife

I thank you so much, for all that you've done

For what you have made me, for what I've become

Now I'm proud of the fact, that I am so much like you

I hope that I continue too, in all the things I do

These words canot express, just what you mean to me

But I will strive every day, to make sure that you see!

I love you mum with all my heart!!!

Mothers do things out of love,

Never imagining that what they do

May become unforgettable memories

In the hearts of their children.

"A MOTHER'S HUG"
A child sits at her window

Watching storm clouds in the sky

Knowing that she’s frightened

Not really knowing why
Maybe it’s the thunder

Could be it’s the rain
Maybe it’s the lightning

Mirrored on the window pane
But it really doesn’t matter

What fears the day may bring

If you’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug

You can face most anything

So soon the smiles of childhood

Turn Into teenage frowns
It seems so much of growing up

Consists of falling down
And through those painful middle years

I soon would come to know
The pain that seems to hurt the most

Is the kind that doesn’t show
But it really doesn’t matter

What fears the day may bring

If you’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug

You can face most anything

Now children do get older

But a child they still remain
Childish fears of darkness

Give way to worldly pain
Maybe it’s the sadness

When you lose someone you know
Maybe it’s the grief that comes

From reaping what you sow
But it really doesn’t matter

What fears the day may bring

If you’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug

You can face most anything
Now I still look out those windows

At storm clouds in the sky
At hopes and fears, joys and tears

Of many years gone by
And I thank God for the blessing

Of allowing me to be
The one who gives the comfort

When my children come to me
Cause it really doesn’t matter

What fears the day may bring

When you’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug

You can face most anything!!!

Happy mothers day to all the mums all around the world!

Being a mom is not just a job....

it's an adventure! :-)

Enjoy your weekend!

Luv, Dolly
