A Tribute to Mother by Jessica Taylor

MOTHER 5-3-2016

A MOTHER IS CARING, LOVING, THOUGHTFUL AND SELFLESS, ALWAYS PUTTING HER NEEDS AND WANTS ASIDE, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GOT WHAT WE NEEDED FIRST. A MOTHER SITS AT OUT BEDSIDE WHEN WE’RE SICK, AND WIPES AWAY THE HURT.SHE COOKS, SHE CLEANS, DOES OUR DIRTY LAUNDRY, ALL WITHOUT QUESTION. A MOTHER STAYS UP TILL THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING ON CHRISTMAS EVE, PUTTING OUR BICYCLE TOGETHER SO WE CAN SEE IT BY THE TREE FIRST THING. WHEN SHE FINALLY DOES GET TO BED, WE COME STORMING INTO HER ROOM SHOUTING “ITS CHRISTMAS MORNING MOMMY”, GET UP GET UP, SANTA WAS HERE. SO SHE CRAWLS OUT OF BED, DONS HER ROBE AND SLIPPERS, AND DESPITE HOW TIRED SHE IS, SHE WATCHES US OPEN OUR GIFTS, MAKES US BREAKFAST, AND PLAYS SOME GAMES WITH US THAT SANTA BROUGHT. AS WE GET OLDER, MOTHER IS THERE FOR US ON PROM NIGHT, WHEN WE GRADUATE, OUR WEDDING, AND FINALLY THE BIRTH OF OUR CHILDREN. WE SOMEHOW BELIEVE THAT MOTHER WILL ALWAYS BE THERE, AND THEN ONE DAY, SHE ISN’T, LEAVING A VOID AS BIG AS THE GRAND CANYON IN OUR HEARTS AND HOMES.SO REMEMBER, THIS MOTHER’S DAY, AS WE TAKE MOTHER OUT FOR A NICE DINNER, GIVER HER A CARD, JEWELRY, OR FLOWERS, REMEMBER SHE IS ONLY ON THIS EARTH FOR A SHORT TIME, AS ARE WE.GIVE HER THE BEST MOTHER’S DAY EVER THIS YEAR AND REMEMBER TO TELL HER HOW MUCH SHE IS LOVED FOR ALL SHE HAS DONE TO MAKE US THE MEN AND WOMEN WE ARE TODAY, BECAUSE WE NEVER KNOW WHEN SHE WILL BE TAKEN FROM US. AND IF YOUR MOTHER HAS PASSED, JUST THINK OF HOW MUCH SHE MEANT TO YOU, CHANNEL HER, AND YOU WILL FEEL HER ARMS AROUND YOU, SURROUNDING YOU WITH LOVE FROM ABOVE.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM !!!
