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
Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
A MOTHER LOVE
If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in it’s place,
but have not love, I am a “housekeeper”-not a homemaker.
If I have time for waxing, polishing, and decorative achievements,
but have not love, My children learn of cleanliness-not godliness.
Love leaves the dust, and goes in search of a child’s laugh.
Love smiles at the tiny fingerprints on a newly cleaned window.
Love wipes away the tears before it wipes up the spilled milk.
Love picks up the child before it picks up the toys.
Love is present through trials.
Love reprimands, reproves, and is responsive.
Love crawls with the baby, walks with the toddler, runs with the child,
then stands aside to let the youth walk into adulthood.
Love is the key that opens salvation’s message to a child’s heart.
Before I became a mother, I took glory in my house of perfection.
Now I glory in God’s perfection of my child.
As a mother, there is MUCH I must teach my child,
But the greatest of these is LOVE.
FOR YOU MOTHER
As my first friend, you introduced me to a life enriched
By your love and warmth …
You shaped the way I feel about the world and my place in it today.
Your confidence in me helped me to believe in myself,
and your praise and respect enabled me to appreciate my own worth.
You guided without control and encouraged without pressure.
You gave your best … to bring out the best in me.
You taught me to think my own thoughts and to follow my own dreams,
To be proud of my achievements and accepting of my mistakes;
To find peace in each sunset and joy in each sunrise …to love my life …
You knew what to say and how to listen to help me through the rough times
And to make the good times even more wonderful.
I took it for granted \that you’d be there when I needed you … and you always were.
As I grew older, I made many new friends, but of all the kindness they have shown me,
Your understanding is still the deepest, your companionship the warmest,
And your support the most generous.
I thank you, Mother, for all you have been to me
my first friend … and my best friend!
