Ode to Motherhood by Jody DeVere CEO




My children have always been

Three strong anchors

When the hard winds of life blew

They always kept me grounded


My first child, a son, stirring in the womb

Love at first sight at your birth

Rocking you to sleep singing Blackbird

All blond curls and blue eyes


My second child, a son, born strong and fine

Brothers forever, sweet boys

Curtain climbers and sandwich grabbers

Fed my poor fishes Kool-Aid..RIP


A daughter, at last, a triad of fun now.

All sweetness and light

Pretty in pink? Not

You prefer jeans, riding bikes and tools :--)


Highs and lows

Through life we clung together

As if on a white water raft

Shooting the rapids together (Boom shakalaka Boom)


You all stretched, grew and launched

Filling the world with your uniqueness

Moving further and further beyond me

Blossoming into adulthood


Bringing the joy in becoming a Mother-in-Law

Blessing me with six beautiful grandchildren

Admiring your talents and adventures...

All live streaming on Facebook


All my Love Mom

p.s. To my own Mom Love You - Happy Mother’s Day!
