Reasons I'm Grateful to Be a Mother

dreams and nightmares
bumps and caresses
hugs and shoves
smiles and tears
quiet and clamor
excitement and disappointment
successes and failures
serenity and chaos
laughter and anguish
love and fear
birth and death

To share the joys, and shoulder the sorrows.

All reasons I'm grateful to my mother, for she shares in my joys and shoulders my sorrows.

Thanks, kids, for allowing me to be your mother.
Thanks, husband, for making it possible.
Thanks, Mom, for ... well ... everything.
