I’ve had my eyes on you for most of my life.
I’ve witnessed you work hard for yourself with others in mind.
All are welcome at your table, and we leave grateful and happy.
Your many grandchildren come to sit by your side to share their lives.
Your wisdom gives them hope for the future and a love connection with the past.
So on this, your 72nd Mother’s Day, Sweet Anna, I profess my forever love and cherish all the roses you’ve planted in my life.
