A Mother has so many things to do,
From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
When they forget to wash their faces clean,
And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,
Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
Of course, that is what a Mother will do.
Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
She must never her duty shirk.
Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
For missing things she must look and look?
Who becomes a listner to every heartache,
To every accompolishment that a child makes?
Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
Of course that is what a Mother will do.

How sweet of you to add me to your blogroll! I feel so honoured. We have just returned from our honeymoon. Today is my first day in my new home in France and so far the Lord has been so gentle in taking me by the hand and showing me wonderful new things about my new life as a wife. Happy Mother's day!

Love in Christ

jimena....I'm glad you are back from your honeymoon safely. I pray your days of marriage are precious and get sweeter and better as the days go by. Keep Christ first in your marriage and I'm sure things will be just fine.
