Editor, the Advocate:

I dedicate this poem to a very, very special person in my life whom I love more than life itself. That special someone is my mother, Valyn Hillyard.

Ode to Mom

I have a mother who is quite bright,

who hopes someday I may see the light!

From morning to night she helps me out,

washing the clothes and cleaning throughout.

She washes the dishes and cooks the food;

she makes me feel better when I'm in a bad mood!

So on this Mother's Day

put the cleaning supplies away!

Let your son do the chores and treat you to a Mother's Day dinner - that's the least I can do

for the greatest mother under the sun!

That's right, I'll tell you again - her name is Valyn Hillyard aka Momma, and she's number ONE!

Michael McCutchen, Point Comfort
