Poefusion prompt

to my kids

they say each fingerprint is unique
but, i know they leave a mark on
you. there is a little of me in each
you, some of the good and a lot of
the bad. i only hope you keep with
you the love i give and leave the
rest behind. you are the most
wonderful creation i have been a
part of in my life, the best of me
wrapped in three perfect little beings.
i can only hope for your happiness
and wish for you to learn from
your life all the things that bring
joy and love and hope. i love each
of you for who you are and how
amazingly you have taught me more
about life than i could ever imagine.

What a beautiful tribute to your three children. I think every mother should share these sentiments with their children because they are the most precious commodity one could own. I know I wouldn't part with my daughter. Happy Mother's Day. Hope your day was a good one.
