My Mother’s Sacrifice
As a child it was difficult to understand my mother.
I never realized the strength of her character.
The beauty found in her timid spirit.
Now that I am a mother I can see it
I appreciate the sacrifices she made for us.
The courage to leave behind all that was holding her back.
She was gained the courage to start again.
Leaving behind a job, friends, and a home
Finding freedom in the face of a world unknown
Raising 3 teenagers alone, no help from their dad
She did the very best she could
Seeking help and advice when it was needed
Her children admire her for her courage
Her sacrifice is commendable
She is their friend and support
A mother’s sacrifice is that of love
Assisting when needed
