You are the fragrance of a flower, the gentleness of morning dew, the beauty of the twilight hour, the laughter of a rippling brook, the majesty of a tree, the calm of a quiet sea, the soul of a starry night, the grace of a bird in flight, you are my mother and I love you.

Thank you for being the first love I ever knew, for giving me the kind of love that only a mother can give, a love that is so eternal, tolerant and generous. Thank you for putting your life and dreams on hold to help me with mine.
Thank you for raising me with strength and teaching me to believe in myself. Thank you for picking me up when I was down with your care and compassion. Thank you for always giving me patience and acceptance. Thank you for teaching me loyalty and trust and for protecting me from all perceivable dangers. Thank you for giving me your time, affection, warmth and beauty and for giving me all that you could give me and doing this job that only a mother is equipped for.
Thank you for cleaning up after me, for listening to my drama, and for driving me here there and everywhere and back. Thank you for erasing my bad dreams at night, for cooking, slaving over and inventing meals for me. Thank you for being able to find the things that I thought might have been lost forever. Thank you for dealing with and understanding my temper tantrums, slammed doors and I hate you’s, and thank you for even sometimes embarrassing me.
Mom, I want you to know that no matter how old we are or how far away from each other we might be, I will always treasure and appreciate the beautiful and affectionate person that you are and the way in which you have touched my life.
To My Mother by Author Unknown
For all the times you gently picked me up,
When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.
For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a “Special Love”
That deepens every year
