For Easter
I Want to Tell You What It Means to Me
to Be Your Mother


Being your mother
means that I have had the opportunity
to experience loving someone
more than I love myself.
I have learned what it's like
to experience joy and pain
through someone else's life.

It has brought me pride and joy;
your accomplishments touch me
and thrill me
like no one else's can.
It has brought me
a few tears and heartaches at times,
but it has taught me
hope and patience.
It has shown me the depth,
strength, and power of love.

Being your mother
hasn't always been easy,
and I'm sure
I've said or done things
that have hurt or confused you.
But no one
has ever made me as satisfied
as you do just by being happy.
No one has made me as proud
as you do just by living up
to your responsibilities.

No one's smile
has ever warmed my heart
like yours does;
no one's laughter
fills my heart with delight
as quickly as yours can.
No one's hugs feel as sweet,
and no one's dreams
mean as much to me as yours do.

No other memories of bad times
have miraculously
turned into important lessons
or humorous stories;
the good times
have become precious treasures
to relive again and again.

You are a part of me,
and no matter what happened in the past
or what the future holds,
you are someone
I will always accept,
forgive, appreciate, adore,
and love unconditionally.

Being your mother
means that I've been given
one of life's greatest gifts: you.

—Poem by Barbara Cage

Happy Easter
With Love from Mom.
