I am extremely blessed with my youngest son Luc.  He made the honor roll this semester. I am inspired to continue to love him unconditionally and to do what I am supposed to do as a parent.   I do not always like getting on his case about doing well in school, but I am thankful he is finally making wise decisions .    Here is a poem I wrote, hope you too will be inspired to love your child with the love of God and help him/her to be the best he/she can be.  Have a great week!

A mother's desire for her children.

Son, daughter I shall be to you
what the marrow is to your bones
I will nourish you with my love
for I wish you length of life.

son ,daughter till you are
twenty and one I will pray
to God that day by day your
steps may he guide.

son, daughter may in my absence
wisdom becomes your best friend
for common sense will keep
you out of harm's way

Son, daughter though sometimes
you will heed the advice of fools
I know you will indeed find ways to succeed

Son, daughter never, ever give up
for wherever life's journey
takes you, I will remain by your side
forever and ever
