My words aren’t quite ready yet to express the many ways I appreciate you, Momma. In fact the invisible line that connects my heart and mind to my hands and mouth, aren’t quite linked up either. So although it might not seem loving when I throw myself down, scream, kick, and run away, know that I mean “Thank you for loving me no matter what”. And when I run up behind you and joyfully wipe my chocolate cake mouth down the back of your new white dress, know that I mean “Thank you for caring for me.”
When I greet Daddy in a warm hug and tell him he’s my best friend, know that I see y’all as one; When I refuse to pick up my toys, please know its because I’d rather spend the time with you; When I cry out at night, know that you drive away my fears; When I wake to give you morning hugs and kisses it’s because your gladness is steady every day. All your efforts toward me are teaching me what the Bible says about God, He is full of tender mercies – like a mother. No, I’m not quite ready to totally grasp all you’ve given and done for me but I have understood every last word, touch, correction, laugh, and smile as love.
I can’t quite make out the feelings yet mom but I know your love is behind each one….Happy Mother’s Day.
With Love, Sam
