Mother’s Day

A beautiful bouquet of words for all the wonderful mothers we love and who love us:

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.”
Abraham Lincoln

“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

“This heart, my own dear mother, bends, with love’s true instinct, back to thee!”
Thomas Moore

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.

Twilight
Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr.

Of all the hours of day or night
Give me the twilight hour,
When little birds hide out of sight
And every sylvan bower
Is filled with their sweet good night song,
While darkness creeps apace
O’er all the bright blue sky along
And hides the sun’s gold face.

That is the hour when Mother dear
Says, “Come, sweetheart,” to me,
“And of the earth’s great heroes hear
While sitting on my knee.”
Upon her arm I rest my hand
And wondrous stories hear,
Until it’s time to go to bed,
Tucked in by Mother dear.

  1. Lovely. An emotional prompt to remember the tender times with my mother. Thanks, Karin.

    • Hi Ethel,

      Thank you — I’m so happy you enjoyed my “Mother’s Day” bouquet.
      The poem about the mother reading to her child reminds me of my
      mom, who always read to us and helped spark my love of words.

      Write on,
      Karin

  2. There are bad moms too, who abuse their kids and often leave them. There are moms who ignore one or more of their children, and yet forgive others who have done terrible things. What about them?

    • Hi,

      Yes, you are so right. There are mothers out in the world who
      have no idea how precious the children they’ve been given are.
      And we all yearn for a world in which every child is loved and
      cared for as life’s most wonderful gift. Still, we can work and
      hope for this while cherishing motherhood.

      Write on,
      Karin
