Letter to Mom

Dear Mom-

Thanks for those sloppy joes,
Wool slippers for my toes.
For drying every tear,
Then keeping me from fear.
For putting up with a teen,
Who somedays was pretty mean.
Still you gave me wings to fly,
Though I never did say goodbye.
Know you’ll always be in my heart.
Bet you’d tell me, “That’s pretty smart!”

Love always,
From your daughter

(My mother traveled to her resting place two years ago today).

  1. Jackie, your Mom was beautiful! I don’t know if she had the chance to see your photos or read your words before she was taken away from you by Alzheimers, but I know she’s reading them now and is so very proud.
