The One Called Mother By Brenda Drake

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mother’s out there.  You may be just starting on your journey of motherhood or you may have new names as well such as grandma, or great- grandmother.  This is your day to shine, I pray you feel the great respect and honor and love you deserve.

The One Called Mother

The common gifts on Mother’s Day people do,
Dinner, flowers, and a nice card perhaps too.
A years-worth of love packed into one day;
Attempting to express what their heart desires to say.
All mothers are different and yet all the same;
A certain pride comes at the mention of their child’s name;
Good mothers know children are God’s gift that arrives.
With responsibility and with many joys and pride.
Genuine respect and appreciation from a daughter or son;
Acknowledges their efforts and says, “Job well done.”
God’s gift is the comfort of a mother’s touch;
Along with determination that refuses to give up.
Mother’s have the heart of a lioness or a she-bear;
When all else fails usually she is still there.
So take time to tell her in words more than gifts bestowed,
Her value in your eyes is more precious than gold.

Exodus 20:12
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
