Who Else Is Like My Mom? A Poem of Appreciation

I love my mom. She is one of the most giving people that I know. She shows her love through many acts of service and through generosity. I can always count on her to be there for me. Not only is she my mom, but a dear friend. And not only is she sweet, but she's SOOOO fun to be around! It doesn't take much time before the laughter starts when she's in the room. Thanks for being such a loving, supportive, kind, and cool mom, Laura!

Laura

A woman of action,

A mama that cares.

Could you keep up with even a fraction

Of this woman's daily affairs?

She gives much without expectation,

She helps those in need without hesitation.

She makes us smile—she's so fun to be around.

She makes us jolly—she wears a laughter crown.

Creative hands and an inquisitive mind,

Another like her, you cannot find,

She's our loving, Laura—one of a kind!

Merry Christmas Mom!

Love, Jenna

Jenna what a wonderful way to express your love to your family! Those words are the greatest gifts you could possibly give as they showcase your loved ones strengths, letting them know how much you cherish them straight from your heart, and they are everlasting. Good job!

Thanks for your positive comments everybody. A poem is such a small thing when compared to all my mom has done for me. I very much appreciate you taking the time to read this and leave a comment--it honors my mother. :-)

@ JSMatthew: Thank you so much. I am so blessed. I'm so glad you have an amazing mom too!!! I think parenting is one of the most important, under-appreciated jobs on the planet. :-) Thanks for sharing, as well.
