Happy Mothers’ Day

Posted on Updated on

If I could tell my mom ‘Happy Mothers Day’

I would write it down in a most impressive way
I would carve it into stone so it would never fade away

I would say it in three languages so all would understand
what it means to have a mom like her now that I’m a man

I would thank her for all the hugs that she gave to me
thank her for the the pushes cause she knew what I could be

Would thank her for the talks where she simply broke it down
she could make me understand like no one else around

She would bust my behind or slap my young face
cause I was doing wrong but never called me a disgrace

She was tough as any man and made me tow the line
but if I ever fell she wasn’t far behind

If I could tell my mom just what she meant to me
it would take a day, maybe two or even three

She was my biggest fan until my kids came along
that’s when she became – the Best Grandma!

I Love You Mom!

This One Is For Grandmothers

Posted on

Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,
Restoring the sense that our most precious things
Are those that do not change much over time.
No love of childhood is more sublime,
Demanding little, giving on demand,
More inclined than most to grant the wings
On which we fly off to enchanted lands.
Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers,
Helping out with young and restless hearts
Each has all the patience wisdom brings,
Remembering our passions more than others,
Soothing us with old and well-honed arts.

More Than A Mother

Posted on Updated on

When God set the world in place,
when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea,
then He made you and me.
He sat back and saw all that was good,
He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store;
He created a mother, but whatever for?
He knew a mother would have a special place
to shine His reflection on her child’s face.
A mother will walk the extra mile
just to see her children smile.
She’ll work her fingers to the bone
to make a house into a home.
A mother is there to teach and guide,
a mother will stay right by your side.
She’ll be there through your pain and strife,
she’ll stay constant in your life.
A mother will lend a helping hand
until you have the strength to stand.
She’ll pick you up when you are down,
when you need a friend she’ll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well,
will keep her word; will never tell.
A mother never pokes or pries
but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need,
encouraging you to succeed.
A mother is one who can be strong
when you need someone to lean on.
You’re more than a mother to me;
a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries.
I’m glad that you chose to be
all this and more to me.
You share a love that knows no end,
you’re more than my mother,
you are my friend.
