Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Today is my mommy’s birthday.
I know she reads my blog. Don’t all mommies keep an eye on what their little girls are doing?
My mommy does. And I am very happy about that. I might not like what she finds. I might not like what she asks me to do or not do. But I love that mommy looks out for me.
She wants me to be safe. She wants me to be the best I can be. She protects me. She feeds me. She cares for me when I am sick.
In short and in long she loves me.
Here’s a poem for you on your birthday mommy.
My mommy is the absolute best. Don’t all little girl’s think so?
Over and over again she takes care of all I need.
More and more she helps me grow.
My mommy teaches me to follow her lead.
Years will go by and I already know …
When I am older, I want to be, like my mommy.
Happy Birthday, Mommy. I really really love and appreciate all that you always do for me.
I will do my best to grow up and make you proud.
You can count on me to always love you.
I am so glad that out of all the mommies that God could have given to me, he picked you.
