Many times my son has said the words “Mum I’m proud of you”, but today it glowed in my heart like a ray of sunshine.  He had read my blog for the first time.

This poem is for you Ethan.

Son, you are proud of me,

But I am proud of you.

For most of your life on this earth

I have been engrossed in many books,

Studied continuously.

But you my son,

Have always understood,

Mummy’s desire to learn and do good.

For we have grown together,

Read together,

Studied together

And prayed together.

And now it’s my time.

To remind you of how proud I am of you.

And support you on your academic climb.
