The Mother of Five
Who would have known…?
That during a celebration of a true friend’s birthday,
A glowing young woman shared a dance,
With a handsome dark-haired man,
Thus sparking the beginning of a grand journey.
Could it have been love at first sight…?
They spent each day together,
Their souls intertwined,
Hearts full of fervor and adoration,
Each said “I do.”
Together they moved into a house,
She made this empty house a home,
Adding her own personal touches to every crevice,
Every night she prepared a delicious dinner,
Satiating her husband’s needs before her own.
As the years passed by,
The joyful family of two grew to seven,
She truly had a handful of children,
As her husband worked hard in the fields,
She nurtured each child, mending bruises and hurt feelings.
She supported each one,
Rushing off to band, football, and piano events,
Livestock shows, judging contests, 4-H, and FFA,
Quite a frenzied and fast paced life,
She kept up marvelously well.
Each gave her trouble, but she put them in line,
Now they are all growing up,
Calling for recipes or advice about love,
Starting their own journeys in life,
She can be defined in a single word-amazing!
The story of my mother-I come from a family of seven- crazy!
