Thanksgiving

Thanks some how seems not enough
How can I show my appreciation?
A smile a hug
Now is the time while you are with us
Kissing these hands that have held me and wiped my tears
Smiles you have given to me
Gift of life 
I am who I am in no small part because of you
Very few mom's will ever compare
I am so blessed to know this kind of love
Now because of you I know what it is to love and be loved
Great gifts like these require thanks, some how it doesn't seem enough.
