What Did You Get For Your Special Mommy?
May 9, 2010

It takes a Mother’s love

to make a house a home,

A place to be remembered,

no matter where we roam.

It takes a Mother’s patience,

to bring a child up right,

And her courage and her cheerfulness

to make a dark day bright.

It takes a Mother’s thoughtfulness

to mend the heart’s deep “hurts,”

And her skill and her endurance

to mend little socks and shirts.

It takes a Mother’s kindness

to forgive us when we err,

To sympathize in trouble

and bow her head in prayer.

It takes a Mother’s wisdom

to recognize our needs

And to give us reassurance

by her loving words and deeds.

It takes a Mother’s endless faith,

her confidence and trust

To guide us through the pitfalls

of selfishness and lust.

And that is why in all this world

there could not be another

Who could fulfill God’s purpose

as completely as a MOTHER!
