I am here to …a tribute to mom

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

As we finalized our 2nd child’s college plans, I remembered a few things ...

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.

To my mom who encourages me to be me:

As you may have noticed - this week's theme is ALL ABOUT MOM!

  4. I think we all go through phases when we couldn't stand to be at home and couldn't understand why our moms can drive us crazy...but now that I'm a mom, I kind of know how she felt =D.

    Thank you all for stopping by!

  6. Beautiful! Just beautiful! Jenjen~~ You rock!

  7. Love it. Very heartfelt. I am very close with my mother as well. she has always been my inspiration.

  8. Love reading your blogs Ate Jen, inspires me to start my own or even just to start writing in a journal for myself-to remember how great it feels when my babies give me random hugs & smiles or look to me for comfort & protection. Eventhough my kids are still babies, I'm bracing myself for the time when they wanna leave the house. Hopefully I will be as strong & encouraging as my own mom was when I left home. Happy Mothers Day!
