It takes a village and
a village it sure does
not a hand too many
not a soul too much

This is for all the times
you show up
you care
you are there


You are there when we are struggling
and learning this gig called parenting
You are there when we are celebrating and counting our blessings

You are there when we ask
and sometimes even when we cannot
You are there when you have to be somewhere else
and believe us, your presence is felt

You are there for our babies
when sometimes we aren’t
You are there for their childhood
just as you were there in your days of parenthood

So for that and so much more
Thank you is all we can return!
