    Mother may I tell you what you mean to me?
    Would it make you cry if I have to tell you why!
    Mother may I say thank you for your undying love
    and devotion and arms that stretch as wide as
    the ocean.

    Mother may I tell you how beautiful you are to
    me? Would it set your spirit soaring , will it set your sorrows
    free? Mother I must tell you how you made me strong!
    Strong enough to endure hardship and always
    go in prayer. I would have never known this if you were
    not always there. Mother may I tell you how you gave me wings
    and taught me and showed me such incredible
    things.

    Mother may I tell you that you are love personified.
    Mother I must tell you that without you I surely would
    not have survived. Would it make that sparkle appear
    in the corner of your eye , like it does just before you
    cry?

    Mother may I tell you that you breathed your love on
    me and made my spirit quicken and flourish in the
    tiny child that would be the me you now see.

    Mother may I tell you that you are my dearest friend?
    Someone whom I can always depend, coming in the
    midnight hour , in the hottest summer or the April
    shower. My comfort and my confidante, with an
    unbreakable bond!

    Mother I must tell you that I want the world for me,
    so that I can give it to you!
    Mother may I thank you for being so gentle and so
    wise , who knew our secret sorrows and heard our
    midnight cries.

    Mother may I tell you that you are My American Idol
    someone whom I would love to be, and often I have
    been told that I am a version of you and you of me!
    Mother I must tell you how proud you make me feel.
    You act like what you do is no big deal, but for real
    I bow my head in humble prayer and thank God for
    giving me to you.

    Mother may I tell you that I hear the words you speak
    and the lessons that you teach , that you can rest
    assured that you put the best in me...It is because of
    your sacrifice that I can share these gifts so willingly.
    Cause the greatest gift you gave me...
    Is
    that
    You
    Believe
    in
    ME!
    Mother may I tell you that "You are Blessed" among women!
    Like the bible says...And I thank you each day of my life as
    I thank My God above for he is in you and you gave him to me!
    Mother may I tell you that I love you and I always will!
    Thank you Mother for my cup you always fill!

    I LOVE YOU MOMMA!
    DEDICATED TO EMMA J. MY MOM

    I AM SO BLESSED!

    Thanks for reading and relating, although I think my Mom is the worlds greatest , I am sure that the wonderful people of Destee, must have had some pretty terrific Mother's as well. I can't read it without crying either Monetary , so I printed up on some pretty paper and just gave it to her with the other gifts I gave her. My Mom is not just all those things she is so much more...And I pay tribute to everybody's Mother..........

    Blessings On ya House!
