Mothers birth us, care for us, teach us, discipline us, and love us, always.
When we’re sick, she stays by our side.
When we fall down, she dusts us off.
When it’s cold outside she reminds us to bring a sweater.
When we wonder “Can I do it?” she cheers us on.
When we accomplish a goal she says, “I’m so proud of you.”
When we go to school for the first time, she acts brave, but we know she’s nervous.
When we bring home a note from the principal she reminds us that she loves us, but there are still consequences to our actions.
When we go on our first date, she paces the room while anxiously watching the clock.
When we head off for college, she reminds us to watch what we eat, and to keep our room clean.
When we choose a mate, she knows that they’re not good enough for us.
When we raise our own family with loving care she knows that she has done her job well.
So, to all the mothers out there we say, “Thank You”. We commend you for your strength and perseverance.
We count on your love.
