Happy Mother’s Day

I finally understand you

The endless devotion, the endless worry

How one tiny giggle is the best sound in the world

How a chubby hand reaching up for mine causes the heart to ache in the sweetest way

The three a.m. feedings and the tantrums

Oh, the tantrums

I know what you felt then and I thank you

I don’t understand what it’s like to have a sulky teenager

But I know I was a jerk then, and sorry about that

I know that it was worth it for you (I hope)

I don’t understand what it’s like to have to let go

I imagine it was hard and I thank you

But right now, most importantly, finally,

I understand how much you love me

Mom
