One day is not enough
to celebrate your life.
You taught me how to count to ten
and to use a fork and knife.
Growing up you were always by my side.
You put up with my tantrums
and let me horseback ride.
I didn’t play with dolls
and I didn’t let you play with my hair.
I’m not sure if you liked that
Regardless, for me you always did care.
Even during my teenage years
when I thought I was always right
Your patience was a great example.
You didn’t put up a fight.
You love me unconditionally
no matter what I do.
You’re one special lady
There’s nothing I would change about you.
When life is tough you are there
waiting with a hug
Whether I’m sad or angry
or coming down with a bug.
As I’ve gotten older
we have grown even closer together.
Our bond is strong through thick and thin
no matter what the weather.
I love our mother-daughter ventures
and special bonding trips.
Thanks for sharing your time with me
as well as many life tips.
spending time with you
From our recent roadtrip and Derby weekend
and earlier trips to the zoo.
More memories to make
that is without a doubt.
Sharing cherished time with loved ones like you
is what life is all about.
Thanks a million mom!
You are amazing!
I look forward to the memories
our future ventures will bring!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Mary Elisabeth, your Venture Gal daughter
