What Is A Mother?
It takes a Mother's Love to make a house a
A place to be remembered, no matter where we roam.
It takes a Mother's Patience, to bring a child
And her Courage and her Cheerfulness to make a dark day bright.
It takes a Mother's Thoughtfulness to mend
the heart's deep hurts,
And her Skill and her Endurance to mend little socks and shirts.
It takes a Mother's Kindness to forgive us
when we err,
To sympathize in trouble and bow her head in prayer.
It takes a Mother's Wisdom to recognize our
And to give us reassurance by her loving words and deeds.
It takes a Mother's endless Faith, her Confidence
To guide us through the pitfalls of selfishness and lust.
And that is why in all this world there could
not be another
Who could fulfill God's purpose as completely as a Mother!
