An Early-Late Love Letter


Dear Mom,

I know it's not quite Mother's Day, but I am sure this is still past due. 
Today, I want to say thank you for the countless.

Countless
     books read
     cookies bake
     sweaters knitted
     meals made
     skinned knees bandaged
     hearts mended
     seeds planted
     clothes washed
     games played
     behavior corrected
     patience practiced

Countless
     words spared
     time sacrificed
     money spent
     surprises sprung
     offenses forgiven
     kisses flown
     hugs given
     seams sown
     sleep lost
     lessons taught
   
For the countless acts of mother-love to this stubborn-daughter heart . . . thank you.

Love,
Me

Your  . . .
