A Note for Me Today ~~

Dear Mom,

   I just want you to know
   that every year,
   as I understand
   a little more about life,
   and as I learn
   a little more about myself,
   and as I see
   a little more
   of the world around me...
   I realize--
   and am so much more grateful for--
   what a wonderful mother
   I have always had in you.

         Happy Birthday

(This was on the birthday card given to me today for my 72nd birthday, from youngest daughter)
