Oh yes you did.
You rolled your eyes.
And covered your face.
And eagerly walked away
from the one who
carried you for nine months–
and has carried you ever since.
The hugs you once demanded
are becoming rare,
now that you think you’re “too old” for Mom’s affection.
But time is slipping away,
and she struggles because you are
Growing up means
the changes that are coming are real,
but none of them more real
You will go your own way.
You will take the next step.
Don’t forget to tell your mom how much you love her while you can. One day she will be the one slipping away, and then it will be your turn to lose a part of your heart. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you more than words could say…
“The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love will find life, righteousness, and honor.” Proverbs 21:21

Some are blessed to have a caring mother who may seem far to strict, but in the end she knows best. A good mother is cherished. 🙂
