My mom does so many things

My Mom does so many things
every day that help me
one way or another.
It’s not like she saved my life once,
but more like she does
smaller things all the time.
My Mom has always been
really honest with me.
She never lies or
makes light of things to me.
Like when my Dad passed away,
my Mom told me the truth.
I really appreciate that she did
and didn’t lie because if she did,
that probably would
have made it harder later on.
