I celebrate wonderful mothers who always put the needs of their children first, the single mothers who especially must sacrifice to help their children survive and thrive with little money coming in, yet finding ways to make them feel they fit in. I celebrate mothers who dole out love in great abundance and always take the time to listen to their children's concerns and problems with sage advice that comes from wisdom's experience. I celebrate the grandmothers who have stepped in to raise their grandchildren when their daughters can't or won't. These are Earth's angels. I celebrate the step-mothers who raise their stepchildren without any reservation, loving them as their own. They've earned a place in heaven. I celebrate adoptive mothers who raise their adopted children with the same acceptance and love a birth mother bestows. They are God's gracious gifts. I celebrate the mothers who have lost their children, through death, kidnapping or by any other loss. Their suffering cannot be gauged. Let them receive blessed peace. I celebrate the dear daughter in laws who have become beloved daughters as they become mothers to their mother in law’s precious grandchildren. I celebrate the foster mothers who give abused and orphaned children a temporary loving home. They have a direct line to the divine. I celebrate great grandmothers who continue to teach their daughters, granddaughters, and great granddaughters, by example, how to be great mothers. I especially celebrate the homeless mothers living on the streets, through circumstances beyond their control, who somehow manage to keep their families together. I celebrate those mothers who live in impoverished countries who have starved to make sure their children have enough food to keep them alive. Blessed mothers who’ve died for that sake, and for those who have died giving birth. I celebrate the time, effort and selfless love bestowed upon every lucky child who has been given the precious gift of a loving mother! A heartfelt Happy Mother's Day to all! © Connie Marcum Wong Poem of the Day for Monday 11 May, 2015

Connie, One child so deserving of a mother's love. You know the secret of life in these passages. Will more secrets be revealed? -Richard

Connie, this remarkable poem celebrates what really matters in today's society (for that matter, it has always been critically important): the role of mothers or those who serve as mothers. This is a beautiful tribute inasmuch as it recognizes there is no force on earth as powerful and influential as maternal love.

That is very true Paul. Giving affection to children lets them know they are loved. Some mothers don't know how to express that love nor do they realise how important it is. Thank you for your nice and thoughtful comment Paul. ; )

A beautiful and loving tribute to those who do care enough to do their duty in a loving way.

I LOVE the way you start each verse of this exquisite tribute with 'I celebrate' and especially identify with verse six as my late wife lost her baby boy just after he turned 21. SHE was the stronger of us two and lent total support when I gave in to the grief, simply could not function and almost went under....Thanks for this my friend - Tim

Connie, You are far much more then just a poet. You are a philosopher, scholar, advisor and many more things. I wish that I had at least one tenth of all of your understanding. It would be a great start for me and my poetry writing. Jim Horn

What a beautiful comment you have given me on a day I could really use it. I had a stroke in my good eye I drive with, which makes it difficult to do the amount of reading I enjoy. Your comment truly lifted my spirits. I don't think I have ever received a lovlier comment. Bless you my friend, and thank you so much. Love, Connie
