Mothers Day

Wonderful Mother

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.

As I Look Back...

As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering...

Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?

For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats?

Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty?

I wonder if I've ever thanked you
for the simple things...
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared?

If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,

I am thanking you now...
and I am hoping that you've known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.

  2. So sweet, Ashleigh. I hope you've had a wonderful Mother's Day. I had never read the first poem you posted, but this past Friday, I received a few flowers with that poem attached while at the orthodondist's office with my daughter. Quite thoughtful of them, huh?:) I love the pictures you've posted, too.
