You were the one He was waiting for.
An adventurous person,
content to follow His urging to become a mother of four.
From Key West to Key West,
miles and years between.
Shannon, Erin, Nathan and I know you’re the best,
the best Mom we’ve ever seen.
When I think about trust, faith, and living free,
shelter, confidence and Grace,
there is in my heart a restricted place
for the one that showed these things to me.
I love being an uncle, I love being a brother.
But most of all, I love that you’re my mother.
It’s unfair, only we can call you that.
But what a thrill, what a thrill!! to be your son.
You’ve set our lives on an amazing track
and the adventure isn’t done.
I can love sports and love my dog.
I can love the Lord and love my job.
I can love Tennessee and love beaches.
I suppose there’s no limit to where love reaches.
But of all that’s in my heart;
like passion, hope, truth and fire,
there will always be a place set apart
for the adventurer, teacher, the one that makes me want to be a mom,
Terry Davis Wilder.
Happy Mother’s Day, I love you!
