Mothers love their children
no matter what
and wish them always to be happy
and have small troubles
solved easily

I wish for you to climb the next mountain
even if you are afraid,
be honest to yourself
especially when it hurts,
be compassionate to others
without letting their sorrow
be your own,
to make mistakes
and admit them especially
to you children,
to forgive the thoughtlessness of others
without self righteousness,
to ask for help when you need it
without guilt or loss of self respect,
not to move so fast
that you don't see the little things,
to love the beauty of the land
and help preserve it,
to cherish a family forever
and to know the most special
kind of love, wife and children.

Moms love their sons
no matter what
and I know all your troubles
wonít be small or easily solved.

You were a spindle legged boy
tripping over cracks in the cement
with run down sneakers
sun drenched hair
the sea in your eyes,
now you are a man.

Iím proud to be your mom.
