No Woman, No I

There’s a young lady in my life
Resourceful, loves to help the needy
And raises her daughter so well
It amazes me

I have a sister who has noble aspirations
Smart achiever, a believer
With two beloved boys
They like to talk to uncle on the phone and flatter me

I have another sister
Reminds me a little of myself 
Full of potential and destined to win
She has the coolest son
The most handsome little fellow

I have a mother
Larger than life
Firmly grounded, with the biggest heart
The deepest thinker I know
I found a best friend in she

I had a grandmother
Pillar of the family
Well-respected, nursed an entire province
Legendary status

All the women in my life
Are who inspire me!

    Your welcome and I’m hoping to be able to put a little more time into blogging than over the last 6 months or so – it’s been set aside for a bit. Take care and hope to see more of your work.
