Poem written for me by my friend- oscareilzondo
Glory to a mother, Glory to a grandmother,
To have love from one is to have love from the other.

My child, I gave you birth
with hopes of someday making you a mother,
Given this gift is something so precious
there is no feeling of giving birth to another.

To carry a living tiny human being inside,
with tender loving care for nine long months,
Is to feel the emotions of a child growing
and forming a bond despite the obstacles one confronts.

I felt every move you made inside of me
as you ate and slept attached to an umbilical cord,
Yet I endured the pain of you growing stronger
as my moods changed from happy to being bored.

Glory to a mother, Glory to a grandmother,
To have love from one is to have love from the other.

Now you have ventured out to see the world
as I smile at the beauty of this inner creation,
And I am thrilled as my own mother was too
when she gave birth to me and felt this sensation.

It took two hearts to arrive at this day
because every good thing takes time to form,
But when all is said and done we sit back and smile
because to get to this day in life we must conform.

Let me hold you my child because I am proud
to be your mother that loves you so dear,
And since we hold a bond from my womb
let us hold a celebration of your birth for every year.

Glory to a mother, Glory to a grandmother,
To have love from one is to have love from the other.

Thank you so much Oscar this means so much to us!!!!

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.
