Called to be and not pretend
Hope sustaining till the end
Allowing nothing to distract
Loving even when attacked
Lingering hugs that can’t be rushed
Endless questions rarely hushed
Nightly prayers and time to chat
Gobs of patience, loads of tact
Enduring till the very end
Depending on my Closest Friend
I am CHALLENGED today to be the most determined, purpose-filled and loving Mom I can be, so help me God!
