“It’s Just A Thought”
Mother’s Day is fast approaching! For those of us fortunate to still have our mom with us, we have another opportunity to say “Thank You”.
Although men have come a long way since the 60’s, only a woman can understand the miracle of life. As women we have been given the privilege by our creator to carry life and give life. Sure there are the days that we all have wondered “What’s next?” Too much to do and so little time to do it. Eventually, we figure it all out and life rolls forward. The seasons we face continue to flow and we watch our children grow, mature, sometimes fail, but always as we pray for them, we ponder all of the experiences in our heart, “Thank God” and leave the results to Him.
Wherever you are in life and whatever stage your children are in, know this, you are so important for the next generation. Our boys and girls need to know they are loved and above all ‘special ’. When they walk into the room, we need to be sure they understand how valued their life is. “Congratulations”, for the labor of love, understanding and your beautiful inspiration. You are the best and hopefully this poem will bless you.
A Mother's Love
A Mother's love is something that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.
