To mom

A special poem in honor of my mother on this Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11:

My Mother

My Mother, my friend so dear

throughout my life you're always near.

A tender smile to guide my way

You're the sunshine to light my day.

- Author unknown

What a blessing to know motherhood and the love of a child.

I am blessed to be a mom and I treasure my two beautiful little boys.

Wishing all the moms a special day on Sunday, especially my mom, Cindy! Love you very much!
