A Mother’s Love

08 May

There is no love, like a mother’s love, no stronger bond on earth…
like the precious bond that comes from God, to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother’s love is forever strong, never-changing for all time…
and when her children need her most, a mother’s love will shine.
God bless these special mothers, God bless them every one…
for all the tears and heartache, and for the special work they’ve done.
When her days on earth are over, a mother’s love lives on…through many generations,
with God’s blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers, for they love with a higher love…
from the power God has given, and the strength from up above.

Omi and her Grandsons

Mother – God’s crown of creation – the giver’s of life – the one who under the worst of life’s circumstances and under the best of life’s circumstances always did her best to keep us fed and clothed and loved and who taught us to be strong women and to persevere. 

L-R Joan, Christa, Judy
Mother – the one who left us way too soon but still managed to knit together a legacy of love and family that has strengthened and
sustained us through the years.

Mother – the encourager – the one who helped us pick up the pieces.  The one that is a mother not because she has to be but because she wants to be.  The glue that holds the family together. 
Mothers are most often the backbone of the family.  The mothers in our families are brave and fearless; intelligent; they have sacrificed to make better lives for us; they are dedicated with loving hearts; they seek nothing in return and have no expectation of achieving greatness for themselves.

In my own life – my greatest achievement has been – motherhood –
Me and the boy…Christmas 1985
Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
In loving tribute to all the mothers in my life – I love them all – the past – the present – and the future.
