MOM, Did I Ever Tell You?

Mom, remember how I took for granted when I was growing up... Always expecting you to be there and of course you always were... Till I have gotten older and began to realize...how very much you gave of yourself and loved me ,unconditionally.... This wisdom has come much too late to tell you in person , how very much I appreciate.... You do however live in my laughter... are crystallized in my tears....memories of you , mom, I hold so very dear..... For teaching me the values of hard work... good judgement.. courage.. and to be true to myself, the laughter , smiles and quiet times....
DID I EVER THANK YOU? I do so hope you knew... A special place in my heart always will be of you.....
I would like to dedicate this to my mother... Winifred Pauline McMillen.... a lovely woman that in no longer on earth but resides in my heart......
