Delayed mother's day post...sorry everybody.
I love my mom, she's an amazing woman, certainly someone whom I look up to everyday. She's has done a great job of bringing me up and I can only hope that one day I will be as good of a mother as she is.
Sometimes looking back on my 17 and a half years I get really sad for I've spent so much time trying to be independent and grow up, and all those times that I could of spent with my mom are gone.
Sometimes, all a girl needs is her mom.
You were there when I took my first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until my steps took me out the door...
You worry now "Is she ok?"
Is there more you could have done?
As I walk the paths of my unknown
You wonder "Where has my child gone?"
Where I am is where you have led me,
With your special love you showed me a way,
To believe in myself and the decisions I make.
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.
And where I go you can be sure,
In spirit you shall never be alone.
For where you are is what matters most to me,
Because to me that will always be home...
