'Dear Stepmum...' Mum Shares Beautiful Poem Written By Her Stepson

My stepson has written me a beautiful poem, which has been framed and will soon be hanging in our home. 

I had written a different blog to start the year but when my stepson gave me my incredibly thoughtful Christmas present I had to share it. 
His gift to me cost him nothing financially but it is priceless for its emotion and for being heartfelt.
My stepsonhas written me a beautiful poem, which has been framed and will soon be hanging in our home.
If I ever feel the need to question my decisions in life and why I am where I am, especially when times are tough, this beautiful poem will always remind me why I did not bail. 
My Stepmum
Although I don’t talk enough, you never huff and puff.
Seeing you always gives me a boost 
and all my fears are greatly reduced.
You are a great cook, and
don’t even get me started on all the great trips for us you book.
Though I don’t always respond 
of you I am very fond.
At Scrabble you are a beast 
and Rummikub you are never least.
Trust me when I say this, 
spending time with you is just bliss. 
And sometimes I know I can be a bore 
but it is you that I truly adore.
You are, and, always will be the best stepmum I could ever have asked for.
Thank you,
Love always, Will
