What is a Mother?

What is a mother? A mother is much more than a woman who gives birth.

What is a mother? A mother can be our mother, grandmother, aunt, or a any special woman close to our heart who not only loves, but nurtures and helps in our emotional development.

What is a mother? A mother is a woman who is there for us no matter what may come our way.

As time takes us forward, our loving mother-daughter relationship turns into one of closest friendship.

My Mom, My Friend

What is a Mom?

My mom is…
as great
at being a friend
as always being
a mom.

My mom is…
as warm and accepting
today as she was
when I was little and
always there for me
when I need a little
encouragement or ego boost.

My mom is…
my number one fan and
has the belief in me
now as she did when I was younger.

My mom is…
just as needed
and just as appreciated as
she was when I was a toddler.

My mom and I are so close.
I consider
her not only my mom
but my lifelong friend –
the one who’s always
in my corner and on my side…
the one I’m always
going to need and love,
the one always in my heart.

Happy Mother’s Day!
