THE CALL

 

Looking for monsters under the bed

then, leaving the lights on.

 

Kissing a scraped knee.

Sewing Teddy back together.

 

Always there to wipe the tears and

hug-away a broken heart,

all the while, teaching us

to dust ourselves off and get back up,

ever strengthening our resolve.

 

Waving goodbye

but always saving a place at the table.

 

Modeling impeccable values.

Loving unconditionally, relentlessly;

her children above all else.

Forever. No matter what.

 

Hoping and praying that she did it right;

that her daughter will, too – someday.

 

Sacrificing herself, everything

that her son may grow to be a man worthy

of a woman who answered the call

to be a mother.

 

To the incredible women who answered the call, no matter how life presented it, Happy Mother’s Day. We are who we are because of you.

 

Let's be friends
