For my mom.
Thoughts from my mother on her birthday!
She smiled the day we met.
Little hand placed in hers.
Passing of time marked in years.
She has laughed with me at the silliest things.
She has wiped away my tears of heartache.
And she has shared in my times of joy and in my times of grief.
She has stood beside me as I gazed upon each of my children for the first time, knowing that I had begun to understand her love in those moments.
She gave sacrificially to her children, not because she had to, but because she wanted to.
And she loved us deeply, not because she had to, but because she wanted to.
So today, on her birthday, I’m taking a moment to say “Thank You” and “Happy Birthday, Mom!”. I am very blessed to be able to talk to my mother almost daily. She is my sounding board, my voice of wisdom and reason, and one of my best friends. She shines her light wherever she goes. Perhaps that’s why she’s so aptly named Dawn. 🙂
Use today as a chance to let somebody know that you love them and/or that you are thankful to have them as a part of your life!
Her children arise and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:28a
Let your light shine!
