Mom



Mom

My mom
Loves me
Cares deeply

Born of Dutch Blood
Transferred to Canada
Married
Six kids
Farm
Cats, Dogs, Cattle.
Large Garden.

Lover of Dad
Wife
Caretaker
Mourned his loss
Mourns him still
Loved deeply
Back rubs
Smiles
Deep respect was held.

Parent
Minder of Manners
Minder of what Girls Do
Minder of what Boys Do
Teacher
Guide
Faithful
Lover of God
Sharer of Faith

My Mom
Not Always an Easy Relationship
Gets stuck on things
Some things more important it seems
Than a daughter's feelings.
BUT always
Cares deeply
And shows always
What love is.

Love is
Patient 
Kind
Goes beyond itself
Not boastful
Protecting
Steadfast
Hopeful

This is my mom
Not perfect
But steadfast in her love.
I am Grateful.

This is a five minute Friday post. the word prompt is brought to us by Miss KateWhat is Five Minute Friday?  Well it's a party of a group of like minded folks who gather on Friday to do a five minute free write around a singular word.  AND THEN (and this is the most important part) we take the time to offer up encouragement to each other on this writing journey.  It's fun, though it's not always easy, but it is always good.   Come join us won't you?  You are always welcome.
