today i thank God for my babies

mother’s day 2008


life out of nothing

chosen, picked, destined

to be part of me.

part of us.

God knew

these would be mine,


to love, nurture, remind

that life is beautiful,




that they are exactly who they are

supposed to be.



meant to dream.

and we will fight for them


fiercely protect

gently love

loudly laugh

gladly sacrifice

constantly apologize.

because time flies

and before i know it

they’ll be gone.

so today i

thank God, for my babies.
