Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

To My Kids...and yours

There is no way to be a perfect mother, 
and a million ways to be a good one  
Jill Churchill

It is the peanut butter sandwiches they remember most I think

Or the times that you helped them up so they could reach the sink

It is teaching them their first prayer

and letting them know you are there
when the monsters seem to be just everywhere!

It was the struggles over long division

Helping them make that big decision

It is letting go and it is hanging on

Those things all make a mom

It is waking up one morning to find they are quite grown

It is watching them drive away now with a family of their own

Now it is listening for their texts, and smiling at their personal ringtone

Now it is seeing life together
through the storms and sunny weather
and still smiling when you hear that "hello,mom!"

and that's poetiquejustis
