Mother's Day Celebrates Love


Photo courtesy Free Nature Pictures

As we journey through the year
To the second Sunday in May,
We rejoice in the love of one so dear
As we celebrate Mother's Day.

We honor our mother's devotion,
Her tenderness and care,
Filled with a love as deep as the ocean,
Thoughtful and willing to share.

Her guidance and gentle direction
Helped us to do what we should,
By example and with her correction
We learned that we ought to be good.

Remembering our mother on this date,
Whether together or far apart,
We are thankful as we celebrate
Her special place in each heart.
