Years after years I have seen you growing.
We have been together from the time I realized your presence in my womb.
Days after days, weeks after weeks and months after months we have known each other.
From your day one in my arm, I have looked at you with love.
I cared for you and protected you
When you cried, I jumped like a super hero to the rescue
And when you smiled it was like angels dancing to the sound of joy.
Since I have you, my world has become a concoction of happiness, joy, drama, scares, worries, hopes and laughter.
During these past years, we have felt each other pain and fear
I learned to be strong because of you,
As my deepest fear was the fear of losing you.
We have been together through ups and downs and we made it till today!
And I am grateful for that!
To my God
Oh how I love you!
Faithful and merciful God
You have set your eyes on me and have never let me down.
All the way from the beginning I have seen your works
Through the bad time, you reminded me to be strong
You taught me to appreciate life with what I have
And be happy with those around me.
You made me a mother, a great and wonderful mother
For that, I am so grateful!
To my daughter
My first born, my sunshine
You have transformed my life
Each day with you is a time for me to learn more of what it is “to be a mother”.
We became best friends and no one has shown me support like you do
You have seen my painful moment
You were there when I cried out my sorrow
Even when I tried to hide it, you somehow knew it
So young but mature, I am so proud of you
And being your mother is what I am grateful for!
To my son
My water when I get on fire
You are for me a peace maker, always quiet but observant
You have such questions that challenge my motherhood
And you are not reluctant to say when something bothers you
Your kisses, hugs and compliments make my day
And I am always looking forward to receive more from you.
For your love, I am grateful!
To my adopted son
You are one of my beautiful achievements
In you I see hope, happiness, and possibilities
You made me realized that forgiving is easy
And that loving is a lifestyle
All the funny moments you have brought have added more beauty and shine to our home
Your progress has made me so proud
For you my boy, I am grateful too!
Hebrews 13 vs 5 “Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote, God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?”
