the power of simply being their mom

Original words, written by Rachel Marie Martin, author of

today in an auditorium
full of parents
my son scanned the room
looking for me.
when he saw me his
face lit up the room.
he wasn’t looking for
the perfect parent.
he was looking for his mom.
don’t ever forget the power
of simply being their mom.
