Mother's Day Tribute - Creative Monday Linky

      The second Sunday in May is celebrated as Mother's Day in Jamaica and several countries. I take this opportunity to pay tribute to my mother with an acrostic poem that I wrote based on the word STRENGTH. I have no doubt that it is her faith in God and inner strength that have helped her after becoming a young widow in her 40s and losing 2 children - Janine in 2008 and Sutcliffe in 2011.

                               Steadfast in her faith despite life's terrible blows
                               There for her children through thick and thin
                               Resolute in trusting God as her Saviour
                               Enduring tremendous loss on life’s journey
                               Never faltering in her duties as a mother
                               Giving us support when we needed it most
                               Thankful for the children that she brought into the world
                               Here fighting on until her Saviour calls her home.

Hi there Maria,
It is good to greet you on Mother's Day! When I read this poem to my mom it wasn't easy as I broke down. However I am glad that I was able to let her know exactly how much I admired and appreciated her strength. It was also emotional for her but it helped her throughout today. Take very good care and I send you lots of love, friendship and best wishes.
Judy
