Here's to You, Mama

I have your eyes.
"One more baby?" you asked Dad.  "Please?"

You carried me for 40 long weeks.

You toasted my entrance to the world with champagne. 

You pierced my ears that day.  (I still have those earrings.)

You nursed me, literally and physically until you were drained.

I can only hope that my laughs, love, and kisses were enough to make it worth it.

I am who I am today because of you.

I can only hope to be a mama like you someday.

Happy Mother's Day.  You are my mama, forever.
