Oh! So blessed

I received this poem from a dear friend at work today:
Your natural children are blessed to have your love envelop them daily;
Your knowledge poured into them in bountiful quantities;
Your creativity presented wrapped with expectation is given to them in hope;
And your prayers — whispered or shouted  — cried for them for a future that far exceeds your own
The Lord hears — Oh what a mother!
Your adopted children are blessed to have your enduring devotion to their learning;
Your push even when they don’t care;
Your words –soft or hard always needed-drive your children to give you their best;
Your best leads their best — Oh what a teacher! 

Happy Mother’s Day

And I am reminded that God places people in our lives that make each day so much sweeter.  My God, I love this woman! 

Countless times have I run to her room seeking consolation.  Others, I’ve come to lament about some trivial inconvenience of the job.  I’ve dragged her to a photo session knowing her strength would alleviate any apprehension I felt.  I’ve confided in her, laughed with her, shared memories.  thistle 2
She has become a friend, and that is not a title I dole out loosely.
