Unconditional Love: To lean back so others can lean inFriday, June 28, 2013
Mom turned 70 today and like every morning, the first thing I wish for is for my parents and brothers to be here with us not just on special occasions but every day -- to smile, share stories, and to be able to kiss their hand to say "Good Morning" and "Good Night".
My mom taught us how to put family first, to give more, to share and to love no matter what. She gave up everything for her family -- because she enjoys giving more than anything else. We may not have the luxuries in life but we hit the jackpot because our family has always been there for one another.
I miss you mom. I am who I am because of you.
You showed me the way
I followed the path;
You held my hand
I stood when I fell;
You pushed aside my weaknesses
I discovered far beyond my reach;
You nurtured my strengths
I aspired of BIG dreams;
I am here to be me
Not what you want me to be;
I am here to pursue my own dreams
Not what you think I oath to be;
I am here to explore beyond the fence
Not where you feel I should be;
I am here to be me… with you by my side.
