I Remember Mother’s Love

It was mother’s love that made our house, a happy home.
I remember the kindness, and loving care of our mother
who took good care of our needs, and those of many others.
During the storms of life, it was our mother’s love, that warmed our hearts and gave us hope to hold onto  our dreams, and keep the faith and endure the storm.

“This too shall pass." she said. "Be strong, God will see us through this storm.” Mother’s prayers and her love, guided us when we were away from home.
She taught us to be brave and strong.
Her prayers, kept us safe from harm during the storms, when we were away from home.
On holidays and Sundays at the dinner table;
I will always remember the laughter, during our conversations about past events and picnics;
and the things we shared during the delicious meals we prepared.
When friends and others met my mother at public outings, they showed her great respect.
She was greeted with lots of hugs and handshakes with warm and kind words of,
“Thank you mam, for all the good things you do. I just wanted to say, I love you.”
This is the legacy of my loving mother.
Her precious memories and love will always be within my heart.
And her spirit will never depart.
In honor of all mothers on this special day

Happy Mother’s Day
