"Time flies,"everyone says.
It's frightening sometimes to look in the mirror
and see the evidence of that.
So often, we don't take a moment to say what's in our hearts,
and then, when it's too late, we wish we had.
I'm taking a moment now, Mom, to tell you this...

When I was a child, there was so much I couldn't understand,
like how hard you worked and how much you sacrificed for our family.
There were dreams you had to put on hold
and dreams that never came true.
You must have felt frustrated sometimes, no doubt,
and at times even full of despair.
Yet you never gave less than your best to me.
You didn't have an exciting career or beautiful clothes.
You never traveled the world or drove a fancy car.
Every day, you looked after us, worried about us,
fed us, and loved us, without expecting anything in return.
You see, Mom, I know now and understand that you actually gave me two lives:
my own... and mine.

My Mother

For as long as I can remember
you have been by my side
to give me support
to give me confidence
to give me help

For as long as I can remember
you have always been the person I looked up to
so strong
so sensitive
so pretty

For as long as I can remember
and still today
you are everything a mother should be

For as long as I can remember
you have always provided stability within our family
full of laughter
full of tears
full of love

So much of what I have become
is because of you
and I want you to know
that I appreciate you, thank you
and love you
more than words can express

When you have a mother
who cares so much for you
that anything you want
becomes her desires
When you have a mother
who is so understanding that
no matter what is bothering you
she can make you smile
When you have a mother
who is so strong that
no matter what obstacles she faces
she is always confident in front of you
When you have a mother
who actively pursues her goals in life
but includes you in all her goals
you are very lucky indeed
Having a mother like this
makes it easy to grow up
into a loving, strong adult
Thank you for
being this kind
of wonderful

You have shown me how to give of myself
You have shown me leadership
You have taught me to be strong
You have taught me the importance of the family
You have demonstrated unconditional love
You have demonstrated a sensitivity to people's needs
You have handed down to me the important values in life
You have handed down to me the idea of achieving one's goals
You have set an example, throughout your life
of what an ideal mother and woman should be like
I am so proud of you
and I love you
