To my mom


For hosting us
For too much food
For scheming with the kids
For believing in “could” as much as “can”
And “make believe” more than anything
For long stories
And warm cuddles
For unnecessary Band-Aids
For letting me think I’d grow up to be a unicorn
For letting my babies be nude in your yard
For both caring for the neighbors and giving a hell what they think
For giving a hell what “they” think regardless
For teaching me compassion
For always thinking it’s time for wine
For being my mom.
For being mom to everyone I’ve ever met.
