Happy Mother's Day all!!! I am eternally grateful for my beautiful Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandmas, Aunts and friends that are doing the hardest job in the world! Being a mom is not for the weak! So here (holding a mimosa) is to you!
I feel insanely honored that there was an article written about my mama and me on Sheknows.com "Am I Becoming My Mother" this week, and wanted to share it with you!
Back in 1999 my Dad wrote this sweet poem for my mom that I also wanted to share with you all! I hope you enjoy it!!
My Place in the Animal Kingdom
For all the years it’s haunted me…“What was my role in life”?
And while I searched to find it, I “filled in” as Mom and Wife.
I had longed for a title, a position, a degree…
And if I were an animal, which one would I be?
A wise old owl that knows it all or a sly and cunning fox?
In business, would I be a shark or wash up on the rocks?
A bull in the marketplace or a quiet, passive lamb?
How long would I have to wait to find out who I am?
Then a snake came near my den one day and I was suddenly aware…
When he tried to steal my cubs away…that I’m a snarling Mama Bear.
Written by Bill McCulloch for his wife, Kim in 1999
Happy Mothers Day!!
