YAP Break To Celebrate Mom’s Day

Posted: May 10, 2008 in Uncategorized

I am officially taking a break from posting a YAP Blog Today.

Instead, I am posting a Mom’s Day Blog

So to All the YAP Mom’s Out There:

HAPPY MOM’s DAY

This one’s for you:

Mom’s Day Quote:

Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children. (Sam Levenson)

Mom’s Day Poem:

Before I Was Myself, You Made Me, Me

Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
Though well within the headlands of your fears.
Before I was myself you made me, me

With dreams enough of what I was to be
And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Relinquishing your powers gradually
To let me shape myself among my peers.
Before I was myself you made me, me,

And being good and wise, you gracefully
As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

For love inspires learning naturally:
The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
And so it was through love you made me, me
By slowly stepping back to set me free.
