Happy Mother's Day 2010

My mother loved getting cards with poems written by Helen Steiner Rice and I use to scour the racks looking for them.  Here is one to all the mother's out there.  Happy Mother's Day.

A Mother's Love

A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

and for those that lost their mom, another by her....

Mothers never really die
They just keep house up in the sky!
Death beckoned her with an outstretched hand,
And, whisperd softly of "An Unknown Land"
But, she was not afraid to go
For, though the path, she did not know
She took death's hand without a fear
For he who, safely, brought her here
Has told her He would lead the way
Into Eternity's bright day...
And so she did not go alone
Into the valley that's unknown
She gently, took death by the hand
And there, with step so light and gay
She polishes the sun by day
And lights the stars that shine at night
And keeps the moonbeams silvery bright..
For Mother's really never die
They just keep house up in the sky
And in the heavenly home above
They wait to "Welcome" those they love!!

I read something (about a week ago) in a book about my mother's "homeland". It said that the mothers would teach their daughters how stitch a that they could recognize each other in heaven by their handwork....and the certain stitches they used. sigh.
