Thank You, Mum

Thank you, Mum, for all that you do.
My siblings and I want to thank you for many things.

Thank you for being at our sides when we needed you.
We could not have survived without you.
Thank you for making dinner for us; if we did not have that, we would not have lived.
Thank you for clothing us; it kept us very warm.
Thank you for giving us a home; we can have a place to sleep.
Thank you for cleaning; we don’t know where we would be otherwise.
Thank you for teaching us values; we have grown because of them.
Thank you for showing compassion; it has been a great blessing.
Thank you for saving us from Dad; if it weren’t for you, his wrath would have taken a toll.
Thank you for Christmas celebrations; they are things that will always touch our hearts.
Thank you for our birthday parties; they will always be memorable.
Thank you for giving birth to us; we would not be here if you hadn’t.
Thank you for nurturing us, for you have always been good.
Thank you for your advice, for it is comforting.
Thank you for listening, for it helps a lot.
Thank you for working to provide for us; we don’t know where we’d be.
Thank you for your patience; we would not know love.
Thank you for your courage; you fought for our freedom valiantly.
Thank you for your devotion; we appreciate it greatly.
Thank you for your forgiveness, for we would not know how to give.
Thank you for your sacrifice, for you have done many great things.

We love you, Mum, and we thank you for all that you do.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
