30th Anniversary of Being a Mom with Autumn Fading
By Cheryl Moeller –
I love seeing naked branches through windows when I wake.
I love my husband Bob’s one day old morning beard.
I love staying ahead of the hours fleeting when I can have a fire on the deck.
I love listening to the birds wildly deciding when to leave for Florida.
I love premiums at the coffee shop worth drinking another hot cup.
I love Red, White, and Blue waving in the wind.
I love our grandson reminding us of his wagon ride by plopping blankets in it.
I love the pumpkin colored bench two miles away on our morning walk.
I love our dog, Boaz, a faithful friend, who always wears his own warm coat.
I love my mom instincts being cozy with my children during short days and long nights.
I love listening to my children take the first bite of a new crisp apple at the same time.
I love my sons jumping over the hot campfire, but no love for the danger.
I love the lake’s edges beginning to freeze paper thin crooked silver ice with autumn fading.
I love thinking of snow days ahead sliding down hills plodding on skis and cold.
I love being a mom for the 30th winter.
