Poem: Thank You For Becoming a Mother

(Happy Mother’s Day. I’m doing them a bit early to remind you. That the day is coming up. Order the flowers now!)

Thank You For Becoming A Mother

You never had to do it;
There are plenty other options.
Buy a cat,
Or a dog,
Or extreme babysitting.
But, instead, you wanted it all:
The good, the bad, and the ugly.

You opened up your arms and heart
To someone lost and lonely.
To you and all those like you,
I feel much obligated
To give my thanks, my admiration.
So, thank you for everything.

Thank you for becoming a mother.
