A Mother Is...

Someone who cares when others care less

Someone who encourages when others ridicule.

Someone who defends when others condemn.

Someone with patience when others are impatient.

Someone who appreciates when others fail to notice.

Someone who gives security in a world of insecurity.

Someone who is accepting when others reject.

A Mother is a friend for all time, to cherish and protect,
as her achievements will linger for generations.


A Mother

A mother can be almost any size or age.

She has soft hands and smells good.

A mother likes new dresses, music, a clean house
and her children's kisses.

A mother does not like having her children sick,
temper tantrums, loud noise, or bad report cards.

She can bake good cakes and pies,
but likes to see her children eat vegetables.

A mother is underpaid, has long hours
and gets very little rest.

She worries too much about her children.

And no matter how old they are,
she still likes to think of her children as babies.

A mother is the guardian angel of the family,
the queen, the tender heart of love.

She is the best friend anyone ever has.

A Mother is "LOVE."



          "M"  is for the million things she gave me,

          "O"  means only that she's growing old,

          "T"  is for the tears she shed to save me,

          "H"  is for her heart of purest gold;

          "E"  is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

          "R"  means right, and right she'll always be,

           Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

           A word that means the world to me.

I'd Rather

I'd rather be a Mother ...
than anyone on earth
Bringing up a child or two ...
of unpretentious birth

I'd rather nurse a rosy babe ...
with warm lips on my breast
Than wear a queen's medallion ...
above a heart less blessed.

I'd rather tuck a little child ...
all safe and sound in bed
Than twine a chain of diamonds ...
about my foolish head.

I'd rather wash a smudgy face ...
with round, bright baby eyes,
Than paint the pageantry of fame ...
or walk among the wise.
