#Loveuary ❤ – Day 2


My Sister Ritu has started an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love. 

Love for my parents:

You raised me and kept me safe

Did your best to keep me walking straight 

As a little pup I didn’t always understand 

Your rules, your ways and your demands

You were and will always be a super mom and friend for me

You raised us three on your own

And still shelter us with love as we have grown

There is so much more that I could say

Just know that I love you, mom

More than words could ever say

I never knew my dad growing up and it holds true to this day. I was blessed to have a loving, strong and tough mom, who poured her love, wisdom and character into me.

  1. This is the most wonderful tribute to a mother! How lovely you expressed her unconditional love and understanding for the growing up kids who check out their limits.

  2. I must agree with Erika, a beautiful tribute and obviously well deserved. We don’t realize the sacrifices made until we are adults ourselves and then we are in awe.

    • Thank you so much, Holly! Yes, after growing up some, you begin to see the sacrifices and understand the tough love that needed to be dished out.

      • So true Syl. My mom passed away when I was very young and I was raised by grandparents and a detached Dad. When I think of the responsibility they took on, having already raised their own children I am in awe. Some people are strong beyond our comprehension.

      • I’m glad you had that strong foundation from your grandparents. So very true, Holly…some people are strong beyond our comprehension.

  3. And lucky was your mother for giving birth to such a strong, wonderful son! A perfect entry Brother ❤

  4. Beautiful words Brother❤👊

  5. Beautiful tribute to your mother, Sylvester 😀
