Happy Birthday Patsy Ann!

I'm not sure everyone knows but Patsy is my mother and an amazing one. Today is her birthday and I wanted to express to her how much she means to me. We have an extremely close relationship. We talk daily and share everything. She is the best mom anyone could ask for and I wanted to tell her that today. Hope you enjoy this poem mom.

Love Tabitha

A Sonnet for My Incomparable Mother

I often contemplate my childhood, Mom.
I am a mother now, and so I know
Hard work is mixed together with the fun;
You learned that when you raised me long ago.

I think of all the things you gave to me:
Sacrifice, devotion, love and tears,
Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul--
All these you spent on me throughout the years.

You loved me with a never-failing love
You gave me strength and sweet security,
And then you did the hardest thing of all:
You let me separate and set me free.

Every day, I try my best to be
A mother like the mom you were to me.
