A Long Time Coming..

Views: 185

Mom, this has been a long time coming.

The older I get, the more I realized you struggled

and you did it all with less than I did

4 kids and a job that pays minimum wage which at the time was 2.35

But through it all

You kept a smile

I would look and you and laugh sometimes because

your grin started at the pacific and ended at the atlantic

And this was all good

Because you wanted more for us than you ever had

And we wanted more for you than we ever could give

We lived for you

And you would do anything to make us happy

And we fought you along the way

And through it all, we had more good days than bad

And I love you more now than I ever have.

I want you to know

That because of you I am me

And with you in this world - there is no other place I would rather be
