Mom, over the years, I’ve watched the wonderful ways you’ve made life special for our family, the moments of love and laughter, the traditions and memories we’ll carry with us throughout our lives. But most of all, I’ve watched how you’ve shown us the true meaning of love in everything you do.
My earliest memories of you, Mother, are the soft music of your voice as you comforted me to sleep, your tender touch on baby hands as you began a lifetime of gentle guidance. But my favorite memories of you, Mother, are the ones you create for me every day your unwavering support, your quiet concern, your selfless example of love. Happy Mother’s Day
