What Matters Most

May 9th, 2009

It’s not the house, nor the things within

It’s not the career, or staying thin

It’s not a vacation taken abroad

Nor time spent online with my favorite blog

What matters most is a girl and a boy

A most precious gift, and my pride and joy

What matters most is their beautiful face

And raising them right, with patience and grace

Happy Mother’s Day
