Moms Are Sweet as Chocolate

Updated on May 1, 2015

What Would We Do Without Our Mother?

A good mother is as sweet as chocolate. She will be there to pick us up when we fall. She is there to teach us to be grown ups. Become the best we can be. Mother will give us comfort when we are feeling blue. She will wipe away our tears.

What would we do without our mother?

After all, she gave us life.

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring motherhood. Celebrated on different dates pertaining to which country you live in. In the United States, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May.

Mothers (unknown author)

Mothers are full of love and laughter
Filling our hearts forever after.

Mothers are always loving and dreaming
Putting up with us and all of our scheming.

Mothers are sweet smiles and happy faces,
Forgiving us our troublesome disgraces.

Mothers deserve this day of their own
To be queen of our heart and of her home.

Great Gift Idea to Send to Mother

My mother had lived nearly 2,000 miles away from where I live. To wish her a wonderful Mother's Day, I would send a card. Often flowers, a gift, a basket of fruit or chocolate would follow.

      Your hub reminded me that Mother's day is a good excuse to eat a whole bar of chocolate all by myself!

      What a chocolatey and sweet is can be way to pay tribute to mothers. We ladies do enjoy our chocolate and as we age, the sweet tooth does hold out as a favorite. My Mom is 86 and has her chocolate every day or several times a day and is feeling good about taking care of her health with dark chocolate. Now, I'm a Mom too and I prefer milk chocolate but do enjoy some of the darker ones too....what a nice variety you have for Mom's for any occasion or to make any day special....sweet!

      Know this, O worthy and diligent lensmaster;

      With accomplishment you've earned a tryster.

      As a token of immense appreciation expressed,

      A squid angel leaves this lens heartily blessed.

      On a rendering that is sparkling in its own right,

      Propagating an appealing thought well and quite;

      If you were to notice a slender shimmering crust;

      From the angels wand, it is a spill of stardust.

    • Ram Ramakrishnan profile image

      Stern and firm from the outside, yet easily

      softens and melts right down to the core;

      A mother is not only akin to chocolate,

      she is the best around and much more!

      My mother was far less conventional than the standard model, but an unforgettable character full of life and adventure. Her chocolate would be that amazing stuff they add chili powder to. Whoever thought they could get away with that?
