Mom was a Loving, Christian Mother!! No matter what We did, She kept nothing, and I mean NOTHING, from Dad!! We would celebrate Mother's Day, going on Family picnics with Dad's side of the Family. Although some Mother's Day's were chilly, We all had a Wonderful Time!! This is a poem that Dad wrote about Mom for "Mother's Day", and this is the way We all felt about Her!!!
We Love You, Mom!
Happy Mother's Day!!
"Mother's Day Dinner"
Mother's Day dinner, with things all so nice,
The children all there, with love in their eyes.
Love for the Mother, that they all adore,
And pretty new gifts, brought from the store.
Love for the Mother, I'm proud is my wife,
The Mother who willingly gave them their life.
The Mother who sacrificed, when things were bad,
The Mother who gently caressed, were they sad.
The Mother who tucked them in bed with a prayer,
The Mother whom they knew, would always be there.
The Mother, who if in her footsteps they trod,
Would make them love children, and be true to God.
E. H. Coe 1972
Happy Mother's Day to All Mothers!!
M - O - T - H - E - R
"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.
