The Greatest Gift Of All

God blessed me with the greatest gift,
a mother who I love so much.
Her smiling face is a light,
that brings me such joy.
Always there beside me 
guiding my footsteps through each day.
Sharing laughter that is contagious. 
to remember for always.
I’d be completely lost without her,
I can't even think about that day.
I know this much for certain,
she’s more than just my mother,
she’s the greatest gift of all

For the Contest "Scavenger Hunt"
Inspired by Constance's Poem "The Perfect Gift"
