Celebrating Women for the Real World



Happy Mother’s Day!


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!
.
