A Note on Mother’s Day

* * *

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual, and physical education I received from her.”

~ George Washington

On this Mother’s Day, I thought I would share a poem I wrote that reflects the sentiments of mothers on their special day. Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!

A Mother Understands

There is no one who can lend a better ear,

Find the right Band-aid

Or tie the best scarf when it’s cold and snowy.

There is no one better to hug you when you’re down

Provide support and inspiration

Or love you when you fail.

There is no one better to wipe away your tears

Hand you a tissue when it’s needed

Or smile with you through your milestone experiences.

A mother understands

The tears, the pride, the smiles, the bliss and contentment

That children do bring ~ it makes our hearts sing!

Such a delight to us all.
