Mom in her early 20's

Mom, this blog entry is dedicated to you in honor of your 79th birthday.  As a mother, I now understand the sacrifice, the unconditional love, the selflessness and the patience you gave of yourself for your children.  The past couple of years, you have encountered some hardships that a child never wants to see their parents go through.  Yet, you are a survivor and every day you show me how much a mother’s love and strength can carry her through even through the hardest of times.  You are my inspiration to continue to live my life to the fullest and to never give up in any circumstances.  Your constant love and affection has given me the strength to be my best.

Thank you

To be a mother is not an easy task,

Yet you do it proudly everyday no matter what is asked

You have turned your baby into a beautiful young lady.

You were there for me since the very beginning and saved me countless tears

The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years.

With my every mistake or wrongful deed,

You were always there to understand.

You put no limits on my dreams or anything else I wish to do.

You never forget to say you care or that you love me too.

The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value

In my heart then you’d ever believe.

There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you’ve done,

Your job finished perfectly for your precious daughters and son.

We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair,

But not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there.

You have always put in your last with love and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you.

We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through.

I know that my teen years have driven you crazy but you have guided me with assurance along the way.

You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.

Your little girl is growing up but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me.

There are not enough words that can thank you for everything you have helped me emotionally and physically.

I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has leaded me and guided me towards the proper path.

How can one simple day prove that much thanks and love to someone who has pushed this far and still is working her way?

No other person deserves a more wonderful birthday.

– Devon

May your birthday be filled with joy and celebration!

Happy Birthday Mom!  You are forever loved!

Your loving daughter, Gayle
