Celebration of A Mother

Celebrating a mother is more than just a gathering

It’s a time for reflection

For all she’s stood for

It’s appreciation for all she’s given

It’s thanksgiving

For wisdom that could only come from her

 

It’s a celebration of her life

 

Mothers sacrifice a bit of themselves

To make us

Who we are to become

 

Mothers struggle

So that we don’t have to

 

Mothers give of themselves

In order for us to receive in the long run

 

Mother’s give of themselves

In order for us to receive in the long run

 

Mothers even discipline

Not to hurt, as it may seem at the time,

But to protect

 

Mothers give us memories

A gift that can never be taken

Nor replaced

 

Mothers lay a foundation

Upon which

her family can build

 

We may not always understand her ways

But eventually

We grow to appreciate them

Because somewhere along the way

They become a part of who we are,

What we believe

And in some way

Whether small or large

They are a part of what we achieve

 

So Today and Always

We honor you

For the strength in your silence

For the wisdom in your eyes

And

For the love in your smile

We celebrate you

Mother!
