Happy Mother’s Day


Here’s a poem we published a few years ago on SavvyMom that I thought was worth pulling out and resending to all our loyal and valued mom readers.
I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing day filled with love.

My dishes went unwashed today.
I didn’t make my bed.
I took his hand and followed
where his eager footsteps led.

Oh yes, we went adventuring
My little child and I.
Exploring all the great outdoors,
Beneath the sun and sky.

We watched the robin feed her young.
We climbed a sunlit hill.
Saw cloud-sheep scamper through the sky,
We plucked a daffodil.

That my house was so neglected,
That I didn’t brush the stairs,
In twenty years no one on earth
Will know or even care.

But that I helped my little child
To noble adulthood grow,
In twenty years the whole wide world
May look and see and know.
