Dedicated to Michelle When a man was sitting beside a sleeping woman after working late one day His young son came by and said: Why do you spend so much time beside her ? And the man answered: Son, Have you seen all what she is capable of ?
She functions on any kind of food, and so rarely complains. She is able to embrace all of her children at the same time, She gives a hug that can heal anything from a splinter to a bruised knee and even a broken heart and …… She does all this with only two hands.
The young son was impressed. Just two hands, Dad,....impossible!, and this is a normal woman?!Just two hands, Dad,....impossible!, and this is a normal woman?! No, this is your mother and each day I am overwhelmed at the mother that she is to you, your sister and your brother. Dad, this is way too much work for one day for one person…...
Indeed, said the man. That is why she is my favorite. She cures herself when she is sick and she can work 18 hours a day. The young son came nearer and touched the woman.
But she is so soft She is so perfectly soft", said the man, But she is also so strong. You cant imagine what she can endure and overcome Can she think? the little boy asked. Can she think? the little boy asked. The man answered: Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate."
The little boy touched the womans cheek.... It seems she is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her. It seems she is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her. She is not leaking....its a tear the man corrected the little man. Whats it for? asked the little boy.
And the man said: Tears are her way of expressing grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride. This made a big impression on the little boy; Hey, Dad, you are smart. You know everything. Mom is indeed marvelous! And the man said: I am not that smart unfortunately. Son, it took way too long for me to understand…...
Indeed she is marvelous! Mom has strengths that amaze your father every day. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when feeling like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when she is happy and laughs when she is afraid.
She fights for what she believes in. Stands up against injustice. She wont take no for an answer, when she can see a better solution. She gives herself so her family can thrive. She took her friend to the doctor when he was afraid, even though she did not want to. Her love is unconditional.
She cried when each of her children came into this world. She cries when her kids are victorious. She is happy when her friends do well. She is happy when she hears of a birth or a wedding.
Her heart was broken when her closest friend let her down. Her heart is broken when a next of kin or friend dies. But she finds the strength to get on with life. She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.
There is only one thing wrong She forgets what she is worth... I forgot what she is worth and how much she means to me !
Sometimes we all need to be reminded..!!! All my love and regret, To my best friend, Michelle and to my children, Michael, Alana and Jordan.
