Thank You, Mom

Strength comes in many forms. 

 

Resilience; 

Getting swept away with the current 

Trusting that smooth sailing is ahead. 

 

Leadership; 

Knowing when to step up 

Knowing how to step back. 

 

Unconditional kindness;

Being a support system 

Despite feeling untethered from your own. 

 

Tolerance;

In the face of blatant ignorance 

In the presence of unbridled hatred. 

 

Patience;

When it all feels hopeless

When you lose sight of the horizon. 

 

Faith;

Seeing clouds block the sun

Knowing that light will always shine through 

 

Strength comes in many forms. 

I’ve learned them all from you.  

 

—Thank you, Mom.
