As a Mother, I Know...

I know the sweet smell of newborns
who smiled at the recognition of my voice and touch.
I know the true of meaning of selfless.
I know the value of my husband
who steps up and carries my weight when I can’t.
I know what it means to love another more than you love yourself.
I know unconditional love.
I know eternal love.
I know strength, devotion, and patience.
I know that dreams that do come true.
I know life
and thank God for allowing me to play a role in it.

Happy Mother's Day
