Now, As I look back over my life
I find myself meditating and wondering...
Did I remember to thank you
for all the special
things that you have done for me?
For all of the times you never left me, and were by my side
to help me celebrate my so many successes
and even accept my many
I wonder if I've ever thanked you
for the many simple things...
The looks of love, smiles, laughter, and quiet times we've shared?
Or for taking the time in teaching me the value of good judgment, hard work, courage, and most important honesty?
Did I take the time to say thank you,
for all those
cookies and cakes,
you baked for a school party.
And for being a classroom chaperon
for dances, trips and things.
I even think back and wonder,
did I say thank
you for sitting hours,
at that old Kenmore sewing machine,
Every stitch was made with love,
just to make sure, I had just the right dress to wear,
for all those
like Easter, School Pictures and the Prom.
And did I remember to say thank you, most of all,
for sharing the story of Jesus with me.
of you knowing Jesus as your personal Savior and Friend,
I now have Him in my life, for my children to see,
Mom, if I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of
I am thanking you now...
and I am hoping that you've known all along,
how very much you are loved, respected, and appreciated.
And thank you for giving
your life for me.
"Even if you did forget to say thank you, she knew you meant too." (Pastor Pat Aman)
