Every Single Day

BY: Rachel Lee


A few words of Mom’s wisdom,
some adhered to and some ignored:

Never let a phone go unanswered.
Don’t wear white after Labor Day.
Keep your figure.
Make enough food.
No foil pans on a buffet table.
We don’t fight in this family, drop it.

My Mom is the reason I am me.
From her, I have learned to spend time
with uncles and in-laws, lending a hand.
My Mom has taught me to be a good wife,
putting my husband first and making his needs, mine.
My Mom is my partner in raising my children, 
a job that doesn’t end,
and caring for my grandchildren.

You, who have allowed me
to enjoy every single day with my mother:
Grant her good health, a mind free from worry
and an always loving heart.

May I continue to be the recipient
of her advice, admiration, and stories shared.
Be with my Mother, who cries my tears and lives my joy.
With Your grace, we will be together,
enjoying every single day, for many days to come.
