She is our lighthouse.
Our anchor point.
She is behind us,
she will always be.
She taught us to ride a bike.
She made us study and sang us lullibies.
She picks us up, pushes us further, and she comforts us.
She is the hand we have held so many times, the one that guided us, the one that still does.
She is the shoulder we lean on.
She is those arms that make us feel safe.
She is the one who made us surpass ourselves,
and she has surpassed herself.
She is the one who forgot herself for us,
she still does it today.
She is so amazingly beautiful in our eyes,
even though she has often believed otherwise.
She is unique.
She deserves so much.
She deserves to be told how extraordinary, strong, and courageous she is.
She deserves to be thanked and to understand how much we love her and how much she means to us.
Above all, she deserves to hear it again.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there who have the toughest and most important job in the world.
