I am letting these words freely flow
To tell you how much you mean to me
To us – your four girls.
My faith is strengthened
When I remember the stories
You shared of God's faithfulness.
My mother, my angel, my friend
You inspire me to believe there
Is a better tomorrow ahead of me.
When I look at Your life and all God has blessed you with
I will overcome my battles and challenges
I look at your quiet spirit
and I reflect that I still have much growing up to do
I look at your humility
My heart is not haughty
I look at your generosity
My wallet is emptied.
I hope I can be the mum
You are to me
To my little girl
Happy Mother's Day
PS: From your daughters, we love you.
