She is Watching You
She is watching you
and all that you do.
From very early on in life
she was watching you be a wife.
She sees the love and care that you give.
It's teaching her how to live.
She watches you when you are happy.
She watches you when you are sad.
She was even watching when you were mad.
She is there each and every day
watching you while you pray.
She is your loving daughter
and her life is an image of all you have taught her.
When she has grown your blessing will be,
that the image of Christ is what you see.

I love you mom, and even though I'll be 49 years old in August I am still watching you!
As I was digging in my file for this poem I came across a card that my mother gave to me for my birthday years ago.
today and always,
please know that I see you.
I see the path you've made
that's all your own.
I see the many unique
talents and gifts you have to share.
I see your brilliance, your enthusiasm,
and how deeply you care
and hurt sometimes.
I see your hard-earned wisdom,
your soft pure innocence,
your unconditional goodness.
I see what a difference you make in this world,
and I hope you know
how very much I love you,
and how proud I'll always be
to have a daughter
as wonderful as you.
How blessed I am! The Lord may not have given me a sister but I am so blessed to call my mother my best friend and to have had two Christian parents to teach and guide me throughout my life.
