Twenty eight years ago today, a beautiful angel named Kevin entered into my life. I will never forget the moment that I looked into his eyes for the first time and held him in my arms. It was the first time that I became a mother and my life would never be the same. Approximately two and one half years later, I became a mother to another beautiful angel named Anthony and I fell in love all over again.
A mother’s love is so strong and deep that there are no words to describe it. All I know is that I am so blessed and thankful for my two sons and the gift of motherhood. With that being said, I dedicate the following poem to my two sons, Kevin and Anthony. And to Kevin … HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
To My Angels, With Love
As I look up at the sky, the moon and many stars,
I think of my loved ones and wonder how they are;
God knows my daily struggles and what is in my heart,
I love my friends and family, although we are apart.
I look back and have thoughts of my childhood,
When I dreamt of the future — marriage and motherhood;
God has blessed me, indeed, with two little Angels,
And for that I am truly and forever grateful.
My two little Angels are all grown up,
I am so proud of the men they have become;
One is a U.S. Marine defending our country,
The other an actor, singer and martial artist.
As you live your life each day, I hope you will remember,
Enjoy every moment, for life is short and must be treasured;
Remember to love and honor God above all things,
And no matter what happens in life,
Be thankful for all your blessings!
Life is filled with many choices and it won’t always be easy,
Trust God and what’s in your heart, choose your path wisely;
Love and respect yourself as well as those around you,
The Holy Spirit that lives within you will always guide you.
I pray that you live your life to its fullest potential,
God has a plan and we all have a purpose to fulfill;
Live, love, laugh out loud and enjoy the simple things,
Life is what we make it, and
It is filled with endless possibilities.
You are always in my thoughts, and
I thank God for you each day;
I pray that God blesses and
keeps you out of harm’s way.
So, as you embark on your life’s journey,
I hope you will remember;
That I hold you close to my heart, and
Will love and cherish you forever!
