A Tribute to Moms

With this weekend being Mother's Day, I wanted to take a moment and post a little something for all the mom's out there for all the hard work, support and love that they show day in and day out. Without them, I think this world would stop turning.

Be sure to take a minute this weekend to thank your mom for all that they've done for you, whether they live nearby, live far away or if they are in heaven watching over you. Happy Mother's Day to all of you and - There's No Bonz About That!

Thanks for All You Do

You’ve seen me grow up, and you’ve always been there,
Through the tears and laughs, I know you’ll always care.
For all the special times and all the things we’ve done,
I want to thank you mom, you are the special one.

You’ve read countless books to me when I was young,
And when I hear that song, I hear your voice and how it was sung.
Trips to the park and art projects that together we would create,
I hold those memories close to my heart, our special little dates.

You’ve patched up my boo-boos with band-aids and love,
You’re an angel from Heaven, sent from above.
The toughest job in the world, with that there is no doubt,
But you’ve always had a kind word, even when I would scream and pout.

Cheering at games, no matter if the team won or lost,
You always have protected me, no matter what the cost.
Each day I still learn from all the lessons that you teach,
Perhaps the most important you’ve taught me- no goal is out of reach.

Whether it was a kind word or with a little discipline,
I don’t know how to thank you, where to even begin.
You’ve taught me what is wrong and more importantly what is right,
And when I say my prayers, I thank God for you every night.

So on this special day, I’d like to take a little time,
To say thanks for all you do, with this little rhyme.
You’ve always been a good listener and I hope you listen to what I say,
You are a blessing in this world and I hope you have a great Mother’s Day.

You wear many hats – teacher, friend and confidante,
You’ve always taught me to give to others and to never want.
But there’s something I do want you to know today that is very true,
I love you mom and want to thank you for everything you do.
