The truest words taught to me by my mom,
Were to ask for God’s will and it shall be done.
She didn’t promise life would always be easy, healthy, joyous or fun.

When life got hard my mom nudged me forward kindly anyway,
When I was hurt, sad. lost or confused mom encouraged me to pray.
When I got discouraged or frustrated she encouraged me not to go astray.

She encouraged me to get back up each and every time I fell,
She showed me with grace how to walk even when going through hell.
She taught me to focus on my blessings and never on the negative to dwell.

As I thank God daily for leading my way each and every day,
I hear my mom saying make God your priority and you won’t go astray.
Mom, thank you so much for teaching me how to pray,
You were right, God has sustained me each and every day.

Dedicated to my Mom “Vee” a twenty five year amazing cancer survivor.
I love and miss you Mom
