Dear Mama

DSC02112I could write a book,  but you don’t need another book to read.  I could write you a song but there is no more beautiful a sound than that of a bird song and rain.  I could buy you a present, but things are just that. Every Holiday I write you words upon words in the hopes that somewhere inside you the words will alight and make you happy.  But I am beginning to realize that simpler is better.  So what I have to say is:

I am grateful for you.

Thank you.PICT0671

I love you.

The rains will come, I promise you.  They will wash away and cleanse our souls and I will run into it barefoot and smile.

Thank you for teaching me to dance in the rain.

I Love You.

Happy Mother’s Day!
