(it's a long story, but just for the record, my Mom's name is NOT Shirley. She has recently stepped into the 21st century and gotten high speed and has been reading so this is for her!)
You clothed me, fed me, rocked me
When I was too young to even know
Cared for me when I was sick
Loved and nurtured, watched me grow.
Had patience that was heaven sent
Kissed my boo boos, washed my face
Gave me confidence, taught me much
Home was always my safe place.
Looked to God for guidance
On your knees through my teenage years
Still your love remained, unshaken
So thankful for your hard work and tears
Opened your hands, released, and let me fly
Was what you raised me for
I have no words to thank you with
Since becoming a Mom myself, I love you even more.
I want to tell the world today, that you are truly a gift to me. You have blessed my life. You are not only one of my best friends but you are such an example of what a wife and mom should be. Thank you seems too small, but my hope for today is that you feel how much you are loved. I will forever rise up and call you blessed. I love you!
