Mother’s Day Message from Beau Satchelle

To our Moms and all Mothers who have taught us swag, style, beauty, jazziness, grace, laughter, healing, and being powerful. Who introduce us to patience, acceptance, being grateful and humble, showing class and being devoted. Who told us to follow our heart, keep it real, living a life of giving, fall in love, and being open minded. To love ourselves, to being committed, having self-respect and doing the right thing, and experiencing unconditional love. To say nothing if you don’t have anything nice to say. Always represent Mom well in public through manners and appearance. Never stop learning no matter how many years you’ve lived. Take care of Mother Earth. And to pass all of this knowledge on to future generations.

T. Michael is not only a master in building stunning bespoke leather products, but he has the talent to create word symphonies into beautiful poems. We decided that there was no better way than to honor Mother’s Day by sharing this poem he wrote years ago for his Mother. Enjoy!

Blessings from Above

Going from one child to another
I love what you made us become, Mother
Your beauty and grace makes you a queen
And your children are proof of your winning team
I do not see you often but I miss you much
You have an everlasting effect that keeps me in touch
I thank you for your support and trust
If it were not for you, I would be in the dust
I remember those times when you gave us an inch and we took a mile
This was knowledge gained as our lessons started to pile
Teaching us each day was your mission
And wanting the best for us, you were wishing
I will never forget those hot meals right before sunrise
Hearing you call for us as we open our eyes
Rise and shine, you would say
Brush your teeth, wash your face and over our food we would pray
It was nothing to have a meal fit for a king
But as I look back, hard work was put into the kitchen thing
Once again, I thank you Mother, we have been truly blessed
And for this I will give it my best
I will make you proud that you raised me and my siblings
Because we were the ones you worked so hard to up-bring
I love you Mother, you are the superwoman of the old school
The role model for the new millennium, while setting another golden rule
The title holder for women who take Motherhood by the horns
The proof is shown by the arthritic hands and feet of corns
Mother, you are my life, I believe in you now and then
You deserve the best as life shows off your win
Yes, you have won by popular demand
So now its my turn, let me take you by the hand
I want to be there for you, like you were there for me
So don’t worry, just relax, we still have a family
This is for all those times that you took care
Fed my face and washed my hair
Changed my clothes and wiped my runny nose
Helped me through those sickly days
And helped me change those mannish ways
How to defend for myself
And of course, what to do with those seasonings on the shelf
As I look back, I am sure all of your children will agree
That your spiritual power touch each and everyone on your family tree
Thank you again and again, for now I am grown
You did the very best any woman could do with her own
And for this, I, am blessed…

– T. Michael
