All In The Family

I didn’t know

I was starting a family tradition

when I bought

that first mother’s day card,

signed my son’s name

and mailed it to myself.

When I proudly showed it to him,

he said, “Mom, could you also

send yourself some flowers and candy?

A simple card doesn’t capture

how blooming sweet you are.”
