Red Rose Mothers

As we observe and celebrate Mother's day,
here are a few poems and thoughts that have been meaningful to me
so I want to share them with you:


What Is a Mother?

         A mother can be almost any size or any age, but she won't admit to anything over thirty. A mother has soft hands and smells good. A mother likes new dresses, music, a clean house, her children's kisses, an automatic washer and Daddy.

      A mother doesn't like having her children sick, muddy feet, temper tantrums, loud noise or bad report cards. A mother can read a thermometer (much to the amazement of Daddy) and like magic, can kiss a hurt away.

      A mother can bake good cakes and pies but likes to see her children eat vegetables. A mother can stuff a fat baby into a snowsuit in seconds and can kiss sad little faces and make them smile.

      A mother is underpaid, has long hours and gets very little rest. She worries too much about her children but she says she doesn't mind at all. And no matter how old her children are, she still likes to think of them as her little babies.

      She is the guardian angel of the family, the queen, the tender hand of love. A mother is the best friend anyone ever had. A mother is love.

What is a Mother?


      A Mother has so many things to do,
      From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
      She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
      She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
      When they forget to wash their faces clean,
      And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,
      Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
      Of course, that is what a Mother will do.

      Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
      Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
      Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
      She must never her duty shirk.
      Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
      For missing things she must look and look?
      Who becomes a listner to every heartache,
      To every accompolishment that a child makes?
      Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
      Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
      Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
      Of course that is what a Mother will do.

I Love You Mom!

      Mom's smiles can brighten any moment,
      Mom's hugs put joy in all our days,
      Mom's love will stay with us forever
      and touch our lives in precious ways...

      The values you've taught,
      the care you've given,
      and the wonderful love you've shown,
      have enriched my life
      in more ways than I can count.

      I Love you Mom!

I Wish I Could Tell You Mom

      I wish I could tell you, Mom
      how much you mean to me....
      But there are no words to say
      how much I admire you...
      how much I appreciate you...
      how much I thank you
      for everything you've done.
