my healing is your healing. my joy is your joy. my pain is your pain.
your life is my life. your habits are my habits. your heart is my heart.
thank you for nurturing me, loving me, birthing me.
thank you for the moments you persisted when you had nothing left in you to give.
thank you for the days you wanted to give up but you didn’t.
thank you for the times you did not know what to do but you did something.
thank you for your grace. for making it all look and feel so effortless.
thank you for listening to my stories as if they were the most interesting.
thank you for carrying me.
thank you for pushing when you were tired.
thank you for smiling when on the inside you were crying.
words are so futile when measuring my gratitude, my love, my reverence.
you are beauty defined. grace personified. love, perhaps overqualified.
i chose you. and if given the chance i would choose you over and over.
and over. forever. my lady.
with love and gratitude.
happy mother’s day!
