Mom - Poem by Ann McKinley

I wanted to say thank you.
For all the things you have helped me through.
It took a lot of courage Im sure,
To get me off of stupid
I know I am not easy to live with
And my moods always switch
But I applaud you for helping me fix this messed up kid
your strength everyday astounds me
And I live by advice you give me
Your support is much needed
and I just wanted to let you know
I am appreciative
For providing us with food, cloths, shelter
and a functional family
for my daughter to remember
I know I didn't come from your womb
But this is the truth
I will always be your daughter
And you my mother
I love you mom.

My exs mother took my daughter (her granddaughter) and I in. Her and her husband make sure we have everything we need. Before we moved in with her, my lifestyle and my living environment were inappropriate I was an alcoholic but since, I have been solber. In school and trying to be the best mother I can be. With out there help. I would not be able to do this on my own.
