Thank You Mom for Your love,
Your patience and Your wisdom.
Mother’s Day is a time to reflect
On Your life that’s been a beacon.
Thank You for your unselfishness
And forgiveness along the way.
Thank You for your faith and prayer—
Evil’s influence to allay.
It’s not easy to be a Mother,
But how would I ever know,
Until I have my own little ones,
And experience the winds that blow.
There’s so much we take for granted,
That’s just the way life goes,
Until we know what’s involved
In life’s many joys and woes.
I thank God for Mother’s Day—
A time to show my appreciation
For all your sacrifices
And life of unselfish devotion.
May Your day a happy one,
And my You find satisfaction,
That You’ve raised me to adulthood,
To give thanks for Mothers and God’s mysteries of creation.
Happy Mother's Day to all those wonderful mothers out there!
