Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday. My mom would always tell me, don’t worry about a gift, just get me a card. But I’d never remember to get a card. I’d remember the birthday, but forget the card. So I started sending e-cards. I found this poem for my mom’s birthday today and it’s what I’d send her if she were still with us. It’s called To My Mother by Susan Polis Schutz.

For as long as I can remember
you were always by my side
to give me support
to give me confidence
to give me help.
For as long as I can remember
you were the person
I looked up to
so strong
so sensitive
so pretty.
For as long as I can remember
and still today
you are everything
a mother should be.
For as long as I can remember
you always provided stability
full of laughter
full of tears
full of love.
Whatever I become
is because of you
and I thank you
forever for our relationship.

Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you. I wish this was something I could say to you in person.

  1. Yes, Enid is a remarkable person. We met in 1960-lived in same dorm in college and have been friends ever since. Her courage and attitude were remarkable as she “fought her battle”…..

    Also enjoyed the poem you shared…I lost my Mom over 30 years ago — and still remember her birthday! You go girl — Lucia
