|Your gentle guidance has immeasurably influenced
all that I have done,
all that I do,
and all that I will ever do.
Your sweet spirit is indelibly imprinted on
all that I have been,
all that I am,
and all that I will ever be.
Thus, you are a part of all that
I accomplish and all that I become.
And so it is that when I help my neighbor,
your helping hand is there also.
When I ease the pain of a friend,
they owe a debt to you.
When I show a child a better way,
either by word or by example,
you are the teacher once removed.
Because everything I do reflects values learned from you,
any wrong that I right,
any heart I may brighten,
any gift that I share,
or burden I may lighten,
is in its own small way a tribute to you.
Because you gave me life, and more importantly,
lessons in how to live, you are the wellspring from which flows
all good I may achieve in my time on earth.
For all that you are and for all that I am,
THANK YOU , MOM.
