(For Angie. Thank you for sharing a small piece of your Mom with me)

By Grace I came to be
Her strength and indominable
Spirit resonates through me
The woman who stands here today
Is only through Grace
Falter I may
Wobble I just might
But because of Grace
I know how to stand and fight
Hard on me yes, she was
But I know now it was done all out of love
She prepared for me anything
For the lessons learned have taught
Me to handle life's stings
Small she stood
But oh what an incredible woman she was
Not a day goes by that I don't feel her
Fierce independence and humor
Alone I smile. I laugh. I remember
Though her presence is now absent
I thank God each day for this Grace he sent...
