The Blessing of Having a Mother


We've all been blessed to have a mother
Though she may be living or gone
But the impact she had on our lives
Will still go on and on

It was through her gentle teaching
That we learned right from wrong
Her wisdom was so far reaching
Her knowledge true and strong

Her efforts to correct us
Whenever we'd rebel
Was often done with scripture
Which mother knew so well

Her correction was usually tender
Most often with a smile
Sometimes done with humor
But loving all the while

Seldom done with anger
Unless we went too far
Which brought a trip to the woodshed
Or out behind the barn

The pots and pans she rattled
Yielded our favorite food
And just like the guy on TV
It was always “Ooo, so good!”

Needle and thread were always close
To mend my pants for me
She dried my tears and wiped my nose
When I would skin my knee

So as you recall your mother's love
On this, her special day
Whether she's here, or heaven above
You can be proud she showed you the way

	Curtis Moorman – Mother's Day 2000
