Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

When you were born, time stood still
Now was all that mattered
Endless nights meant endless love

When you learned to speak, time stood still
Hearing your voice was all that mattered
Constant chatter meant endless entertainment

When you first went to school, time stood still
Watching you walk away was all that mattered
Quiet moments meant endless longing for you to return

When your heart first broke, time stood still
Wiping your tears was all that mattered
Your sadness meant endless opportunities to hold you close

When you left the nest, time stood still
Immersing myself in the memories was all that mattered
Knowing you were ready meant endless prayers of gratitude

Being a mom means time always 'stands' still
Loving you with all of me is all that ‘matters’
Having a child to call my own 'means' endless reward
