Memoirs of a loving mom

No dust ! isn’t it beautiful!

Advertisements

I am a mother of an awesome  daughter and two amazing boys.  I am also a wife, cook , maid, chauffeur, self-taught nurse, referee, mediator, exc.. I bet you’re thinking  this lady must be rich with all these jobs.  You’re right , but it’s not the kind of rich that involves money. I’m rich in love, stress, insanity, happiness, as well as so many other riches only a parent finds more valuable than gold. Being a mother is the best job in the world most days, but I’ll admit there are some days I just want tuck tail and run with what little sanity I have secretly stashed away in case of emergency.  I started this blog to help other moms , but truthfully I hope it helps me too. I try to keep things short and sweet . Most of my posts are going to be poetic. I realize poetry is an acquired taste and not everyone is going to like it.  When I write I tell a story about my life. Every poem or post I write will be genuine and completely from my heart. I hope other moms can relate to my blog. Being a mother means living a  life full of beautifully bitter-sweet moments with a dash of chaos. All we can do is hang on and enjoy the roller-coaster ride. Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll follow my blog. 🙂

Once I was

Once I was just a little girl that longed for her mother’s drunken words to go unspoken.

Once I was just a little girl that dream’t not of picket fences but of doors that stood wide open.

 Once  I was just a little girl who wished her home had never been  broken.

Once I was just a little girl that missed her daddy’s hands and his arms that were always open.

Once I was just a little girl that didn’t understand her journey in God’s plan.

Once I was just a little girl that started to pray and  Jesus became her friend.

I am now just a woman that has learned from her mother’s mistakes.

I am now just a mom who loves her kids so much that her once broken heart no longer aches.

My hush-a-bye

I turn the flash off and my phone volume down.

In this moment I am determined not to make a sound.

I desperately want this moment to last.

He doesn’t like pictures so I better make it fast.

His pretty blues melt my heart and the moment passes by.

Heavens knows I  don’t know what I would do without this little guy.

More than I am

I must be as gentle as the Good Lords hands when they need tenderness and love.

I must be as tough as nails when they need the strength to get back up.

I must be as courageous as the lioness when they need courage to perform.

I must be as water proof as an umbrella  when they need shelter from the storm.

I must be as stubborn as the donkey when they need to learn right from wrong.

I must be as vigilant as the elephant when they need to hear a forgotten song.

I must be more than I am when they need someone to call their mom.

Something for them behind

I spend my days in worry that I haven’t done enough.

If I left this world behind would they remember all my  love.

I know I haven’t done everything right but my presence is never too far from sight.

Should they ever call my name I run with all my might.

I am always ready for battle should they need a sacrifice.

I do not sleep deeply into the precious night.

I give and I give never wishing to take.

I remain invisible in photos behind the camera’s face.

It isn’t materials that  I wish to leave behind.

It’s them knowing they were and always will be loved every day of their lives.

Loving her tough

She says I love her brothers more.

This just isn’t true but it’s hard to ignore.

I do for her as I do for them.

I spread myself paper thin to show my love from within.

At times I cannot be her friend.

Sometimes I must be the mother hen.

I’m sure I have fault in her feeling this way.

In my endless efforts to keep her safe I may have caused some dismay.

She doesn’t understand just how much strength it will take to make it in this world.

I loved her then, I love her now, I’ll forever love my precious girl.

patience my sweet girl

memoirs of a loving mom

She’s growing up way too fast.

My blossoming beauty thinks her youth will forever last.

I tell her time will pass in the blink of an eye.

She insists it’s taking too long to find the path that will lead her to the light.

I long to tell her to just be patient  but I remember feeling the same urgency.

It seems like only yesterday I was in search of my own journey.

She is as I was and she resembles my youth in everything she desires to be.

I know I can’t keep her my little girl forever but I hope she’ll always keep a piece of me.

She longs so desperately to spread her wings just as I secretly long for her to fly.

I just pray it’s always I’ll see you later but never the words good-bye.
