my mom though

it’s a couple of days after mother’s day, but right now is when i feel flooded with gratitude to my mom.

she is kind, and fiercely loyal.
she is infinitely generous, and leads with love.
she is patient and shines light on the best in the people she loves.

i am forty, and i am happy.
i know what it feels like to be loved unconditionally.

she shows up.
she is curious.
she believes me, believes us her daughters, believes everyone she meets who needs some mothering.
she prays for everyone we’ve ever loved.

we are friends. comrades.

every day. i love my mama.
