Thank You Mom

My First Christmas

Just a little note to say,
I’m grateful for the gift you gave:
A loving home, a place to start
Upon this life, you did to me depart.

Without your loving care to see
Through troubled times I could not be.
No matter where I place my hat,
I’ll always know that we can chat.

The little things you send my way,
Help brighten up the gloomy days.
I have in me the strength you gave,
When as a child I saw you brave.

Even through the thorns and weeds,
You did your best and prayed for me.
The seed did blossom as it grew,
You gave me life and I thank you.
