My daughter, Marsha, was born on Friday the 13th and my son on Mother's day. It should have been changed around. Although there were the teenage tangles, I have had a wonderful relationship with my daughter. She was my strength through my divorce, and I was there for her when her marriage dissolved. She's given me one grandson and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Now I'm 98 and she is the one helping me, sharing the good things in life.
Many are the joys in life.
I'm blessed with quite a few.
Still, most of all I'm grateful
To have a daughter just like you.
I remember well when you were born,
The joy that filled my heart.
When I first held you in my arms,
I loved you from the start.
It was always such a pleasure
To see your precious life unfold.
Learning new things every day
Brought happiness untold.
The child in you, I still can see.
A glimmer here and there.
The smile when you anticipate,
A tugging at your hair.
Though no one knows the future,
What each one has in store,
I know whatever happens
I couldn't love you more.
So on this special day of yours,
Know the love that's there for you.
Not just today, but every day,
Will last a lifetime through.
