- Proverbs 31: 25-30

My Mother's Hands by Gertrude Tooley Buckingham


My Mother's hands, so thin and work-worn,
Were loved by me as jewels, rare,
For they had rocked me in my cradle,
And, lovingly, they'd stroked my hair.
They worked for me, both night and morning;
They helped to smooth away my fears,
For never were these dear hands idle;
I think of them with love and tears!
My Mother's hands to me were precious:
I thought their beauty was sublime;
I felt no harm on earth could touch me
If they were near me all the time!

nine.

Where we love is home — home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

- Dinah Craik

Mother's Day by David Young

- for my children

I see her doing something simple, paying bills,

or leafing through a magazine or book,

and wish that I could say, and she could hear,


that now I start to understand her love

for all of us, the fullness of it.


It burns there in the past, beyond my reach,

a modest lamp.

My mother... she is beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel. I want to grow old and be like her.

From Summer Island by Kristin Hannah

As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.

I Learned From You by Joanna Fuchs


I learned about love from you,
Watching your caring ways.
I learned about joy from you
In fun-filled yesterdays.

From you I learned forgiving
Of faults both big and small.
I learned what I know about living
From you, as you gave life your all.

The example you set is still with me
I'd never want any other.
I'm thankful for all that you taught me,
And I'm blessed to call you "Mother."

twenty.

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.

- Stevie Wonder

The love of a mother is the veil of a softer light between the heart and the heavenly Father.
