“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.
