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!

Wishing all mothers, of every hue and kind,
a wonderful, blessed Mother’s Day!
Her children arise up, and call her blessed…
