I wrote this poem for my cousin Cathy’s fiance (at the time) before their wedding in 1999. It’s a little cheesy but I still think it’s cute.

This is about the first time my husband met my cousin Jimmy. I sure am glad they got to know one another better after this fiasco! haha

I wrote this poem for my Aunt Lynn because she was a loving and strong friend to me. I will miss her every day for the rest of my life.


The Heart of a Mother

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

As so many mothers are forced to do, I ended up feeling like a single mother a lot of times. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful I have been blessed with the wonderful husband I have. He just worked so hard to provide for us and it felt like he was never around. This was around 1996 when our 2 daughters were 3 and 5. I had a job and was in school but somehow most of the household responsibilities, even paying the bills fell on me. Anyhoo, that’s where this poem came from, many moons ago.
