This Mother's Day there will be thousands of Moms who don't receive handmade notes, or home crafted, crayon colored cards. These moms mother for a smile or a tender touch, they mother because that is simply what you do as a Mom. This letter is for the Special Needs Mom , whose child is unable to write or say the words this Mom may long to hear.
Even without my words you always know what I need.
When I am hurting or afraid, frustrated or weary, you gather me home into the safety of your arms.
You know what makes me smile, and fills my face with light.
You make my happiness when you sing my favorite song, and sweep the softness of my favorite blanket, across the curve of my cheek.
