HAPPY MOMMIES DAY!

I just sent this to my mommie, I wrote it today for her.

Memory Poem

My Mommie, as I remember…

                                                Hugs

Kissing the boo boos

                                                hugs

Thank you’s for every dandelion offered

                                                hugs

Patiently allowing my Day Dreams

                                                hugs

All your clean sheets used as tents

                                                hugs

Dealing with dead fish worms in pockets

                                                hugs

Going along with my imaginings

                                                hugs

Searching JCPenny for the new John Denver record

                seeing it below us as we went up the escalator!

                                                hugs

Giving my pet hermit crab (Peek_A_Boo) a funeral

                                                                                                in your rhubarb patch

                when he died on the Last Day of School

                                                                                                (Saddest LDoS EVER!)

                                                hugs

Laying out together in Florida

                both with our heads in books

                                                hugs

Trying to teach a tomboy to sway her hips when she walked

                                                hugs

Letting me talk you into more color

                when you were into ‘neutrals’

                                                hugs

Shopping Used Book stores

                getting yelled at by Dad for bringing home a bag each!

                                                hugs

Hanging out with me at the mall like a big sister

                                                hugs

Snagging your Romance novels when I ran out of Fantasy to read

                                                hugs

Sharing my baby girl’s first laugh

                (Velvet and that big ball!)

                                                hugs

Hearing your story about how she locked you out of your own house and…

                stood there waving at you while you waited for the lock smith!

                                                hugs

Beating Breast Cancer like a REAL heroine!

                                                Group HUG after you got better.

~Maria Rich aka your crazy kid! Mothers Day 2013

Looking forward to my next hug!
