Kaleb Mother's Day Poem 2011

Your love is like the air, it stays with me no matter where I go.

It's sweet like ice cream.

It's warm like a blanket.

It's soft like a dog's fur.

And your heart is as big as the Universe.

Thankful for my Mom Today

* I am grateful God gave me to my Mom.

*I am thankful for my Mom's transparency about her life.

*My Mom knew how to laugh.

*My Mom taught me how to forgive.

*She taught me the importance of knowing Scripture during tough times.

*My Mom chose life for me instead of aborting me.

*My mom never met a stranger-she loved everyone.

*She always loved me.

*She was always proud of me.

*She taught me how to "fight" for my family effectively. She was my biggest prayer warrior.

To God be the glory for loving me enough to give me my Momma even if it was for a short period of time.

The Journey to a Grateful Heart...

*Listening to my son, Joshua, belt out his heart in song at church.

*Kaleb smiling at me from across the sanctuary at church.

*Long talks with friends.

*Mary-Elizabeth playing with my hair for the first time.

*Topical steroid ointments, zyrtec, and other sorts that keep the itch away.

*Meals already planned.

*Unexpected love emails from my Prince.

*Stephen teaching his younger brother how to play.

*Kitchen cabinets cleaned off.

*Full body hugs and giggles from my sweet teddy bear Micah.

*Empty dishwashers.

*School room table cleaned off.

*Laying on the couch with my family and watching movies.

*Unexpected checks.

My heart leaps for joy

and I will give thanks

to Him in song.

Ps. 28:7b
