Mother's are Angels

Updated on January 5, 2008

To a child, mother's are angels....who fill this life with song...for, as you know, an angel can never do a wrong...to a child,mother's are treasures...of a priceless worth...and this fact is certain....throughout all the earth...a child cling's to it's mother...as birds cling to a tree....this is true and will be so....for all eternity....father's are loved but mother's are....the port in every storm...so sincere and tender...understanding and warm...To a child, mother's are angels...and this one thing I know. Children harbor truest thoughts...God has deemed this so.

written by G-Ma :O) while in the convent in 1976...JMJ

      Raised by a single mother, I cant help but agree.

      There is an all enveloping sense of comfort with mothers. The one truth in your life if you will. You know that you can count on her love despite anything that might come between you. Beautifully written and well delivered!

      I'm also impressed you kept the poemwith you for so long!

      Hi G-Ma J

      I was just on my computer writing away and heard the ding on my email go off. G-Ma has published! So here I am. I clicked right away, because I knew it would make me smile. And it did.

      You are sunshine on this rainy day in California.

      Thank you,

      When you click on an RSS feed it adds a little tab to the browser which tells you when someone you have "RSS'D" makes a hub. You can add one RSS per person if you like, its up to you. Its basically an interactive bookmark.

      Thoog. ;)

      From what I see, you are one, G-Ma. Now, don't tell me about your devilish, hidden depths, so that I can carry on thinking about you that way, hehe!

      I won't sugar although I do have quite a story of my life. Wouldn't want to shock such a sweet gentle man as you..there are two sides I think to most people..and when you get to my age you will see what I mean. I am still who I am..just been through a lot in my time...Nothing I am ashamed of though..well not exactly....he he ha ha :O) G-Ma

      That's intriguing, G-Ma! And I, for my part, shall not reveal to you that I have not always been a sweet gentleman, hehe.

      The truest (and in my opinion only) angels are mothers.

      sciantel..how wonderful of you to recognize the value of your mom as she certainly does you.  There is nothing in this world a mom won't do for her children..even if they don't think so..Sorry to hear you have Lupus  but you seem to be handling it well  My prayers will now include you and your mom my Dear..G-Ma :O)

      Stacie my love..I did not keep a journal but wrote many poems to try to express my feelings. At night when we were to be in bed and in totall silence I would go to the Lavatory and sit in a stall to write my poems. Naughty Nun. Believe me my head is full of memories though..Kenny has already suggested I do a story about this..But am not a story writer. I sure can babble on here though huh? love you sweetie...G-Ma :O)
