About Me

My photo
I’m married (for the 2nd time) just over a year now. I have 3 children ages 21, 17 & 16 as well as a daughter who is 21 years old from my husband’s previous marriage (not a typo) and recently married so I am now a mother-in-law as well. I think it’s great!! All my love to both of them!!! As long as they wait to have children until he is out of the Army! I’m also a Nursing student in my 2nd year of school. I’m seriously considering a change in my major to Nutrition. Much as I want to be a Nurse, I think becoming a Nutritionist may be the avenue I choose. I am fluent in American Sign Language and speak Italian as well. I also love the outdoors, camping, hiking, riding motorcycles with my husband, and the beach are among a few. I hate the cold but I love snowball fights with my family. I enjoy crochet of all kinds, but there’s something about the detail when it is done with crochet thread that I especially love. I try to spend as much time as I can enjoying life and what it has to offer.

For My Mom

A Mother's Love

Always were you there for me
Never seeing anything but good
You cared for me when I was hurt
And wiped the tears away
Unceasingly there to offer advice
To guide me when I went astray
The love unconditionally that you gave
Always there when I needed you
I knew that from the time that I was young
And now that I have grown
You and I have become close friends
A friendship that I cherish
I know the wonders that you feel
When watching your children grow
As I too am a Mother
And I now know the joy it brings
To watch a piece of you live on
Bringing delight to others
As they grow older
I fear how it will be
When the time has come to let them go
To become what I am now
I know the simple joys of parenthood
And the fears that we all feel
Will I be ready when my time comes
To accept they are no longer children
To let them go and live their lives
I hope and pray
That I will have been able
To give them the gift that you have given me
A love strong enough
To hold them in my heart
Yet let my children grow completely
To become adults
And pass that love to theirs.

This was a poem I wrote for my mom quite a few years ago and recently came across it again. I thought it might be nice for her to see it here.
