Happy Birthday Mom!!
Today is my mother's birthday. I really love Suzy Toronto's poems and here is one of her poems called "She Who Is My Mom."

She Who is My Mom!
As a child, I opened my eyes
For the first time to
‘She who’ wiped my tears,
Kissed my boo-boos,
And loved me more than life itself.
As a young woman,
I opened my eyes once again
and saw‘She who’ was a strong
and independent woman.
She gave me wings
And taught me how to fly.
Today I open my eyes and see
‘She who’ is my dearestand truest friend.
She encouraged my dreams,
Applauded my accomplishments,
Understood my mistakes
And has always
been so proud of me.
She’s my Mom!
And I love her more than Life itself!

me and mom

Please wish my mom a Happy Birthday in the comments if you wish. Her name is Loretta.
