for mom, with love

May 11, 2010

In honor of Mother’s Day…..

There are no words perfect enough to describe my mom. She’s indescribable and words just won’t suffice.
She’s more of a feeling to me….a joy, a moment of happiness.
She’s the voice that brightens my day, she’s the hug that gives me strength, she’s the call that makes my morning, she’s the face that brings delight, she’s the hand that supports me, she’s the truth that I need but not always want, she’s the laugh that makes my stomach hurt, she’s the heart that never stops giving, she’s the smile that brings peace, she’s the hope that fills my life with dreams, she’s the best blessing God’s given me…she’s my mom, and she’s just the kind of mother I hope to one day be.

The Best Day

Taylor Swift’s greatest song
read and listen.

i’m five years old it’s getting cold i’ve got my big coat on
i hear your laugh and look up smiling at you i run and run
past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides look now the sky is gold
i hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

i don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
i know you’re not scared of anything at all
don’t know if snow white’s house is near or far away
but i know i had the best day with you, today

i’m thirteen now and don’t know how my friends could be so mean
i come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
and we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
and we talk and window shop till i forgot all their names

i don’t know who i’m gonna talk to now at school
but i know i’m laughing on the car ride home with you
don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel ok
but i know i had the best day with you today

i have an excellent father
his strength is making me stronger
god smiles on my little brother
inside and out he’s better than i am

i grew up in a pretty house and i had space to run
and i had the best days with you

there is a video i found from back when i was three
you set up a paint set in the kitchen and you’re talking to me
it’s the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
daddy’s smart and you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

now i know why all the trees change in the fall
i know you were on my side even when i was wrong
and i love you for giving me your eyes
staying back and watching me shine and i didn’t know if you knew
so i’m taking this chance to say that i had the best day with you today

My mother’s day gift to my mom….

Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; character, hope. Romans 5: 3-4

    I can hardly read this through the tears in my eyes.
    Each day that I get to spend with you is my best day. You are the inspiration and strength that drives me to keep on going. You are God’s gift to me…my most cherished gift.
    The words in your post are beautiful, and I thank you not only for the words, but for being YOU…an incredible giving and loving daughter. Thank you.
    I love you with all my heart! XXOO
