(Nan and Mum)
as I look back on my life
I find myself wondering
did I remember to thank you for all that you have done for me?
for all the times you were by my side to help me celebrate
my successes and accept my defeats
or for teaching me the value of hardwork,
good judgement, courage and honesty.
I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you for the simple things -
the laughter, smiles and quiet times we’ve shared.
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude for any of these things,
I am thanking you now -
and I am hoping that you’ve known all along
how very much you are loved and appreciated.
To Mum I love you …..
