My Mother

Day 20    #SOL17

This is my first year slicing and am so grateful for twowritingteachers.com 

Due to the community they have created I have found somewhere to land and write.

 

My Mother

Her heart

large and giving

to those in need

Her hands

Arthritic and sore

from the work

she enjoys

Her life

A gift that taught me

so much
