Happy Mother's Day!

What is a Mother? By: Katherine Nelson Davis

A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,
To love us, whatever we do,
With a warm understanding and infinite patience,
And wonderful gentleness, too.
How often a mother means swift reassurance
In soothing our small, childish fears,
How tenderly mothers watch over their children
And treasure them all through the years!
The heart of a mother is full of forgiveness
For any mistake, big or small,
And generous always in helping her family
Whose needs she has placed above all.
A mother can utter a word of compassion
And make all our cares fall away,
She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter
And make life delightful and gay.
A mother possesses incredible wisdom
And wonderful insight and skill -
In each human heart is that one special corner
Which only a mother can fill!

Hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!

Hugs & Blessings, Tammy

Happy Mother's day! A lovely poem. And lovely flowers too. Any big plans for the day? We will of course visit our mothers. But other than that I am just relaxing and enjoying the day.
Love you!
