You taught me…
strength and patience,
kindness and endurance,
wisdom and faith,
confidence and questioning,
humor and humility,
how to learn, and how to teach
how to be a great woman, and how to be an even better human,
that it’s OK to cry, and that it’s even better to kick ass and take names,
and that a cup of tea and a bath can heal everything
from a broken leg to a broken heart.
Dear Mummy, on your Birthday
thank you. If I can become half the woman you are, I’ll be head and shoulders above many.
Rock on, honey badger. I love you.
