Happy Mother's Day!

A Mother's Love

There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.

A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.

When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.

Oh and I love this one:
A mother's patience
A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a 3-year-old girl in her basket. As they passed the cookie section, the child asked for cookies and her mother told her “No.”

The little girl immediately began to whine and fuss. The mother said quietly, “Now, Ellen, we just have a few more aisles to go; don’t be upset. It won’t be long.”

The man passed the mother again in the candy aisle. Of course, the little girl began to shout for candy. When she was told she couldn’t have any, she began to cry.

The mother said, “There, there, Ellen, don’t cry. Only two more aisles to go, and then we’ll be checking out.”

Later, the man happened to be behind the pair at the checkout, where the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there would be no gum purchased today. The mother patiently said, “Ellen, we’ll be through this check out stand in five minutes, and then you can go home and have a nice nap.”

The man decided to compliment the mother. “I couldn’t help noticing how patient you were with little Ellen.”

“Ellen?” said the mother, “I’m Ellen. My little girl’s name is Tammy!”

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
