Happy Mother's Day

(repost from {here})

God, be kind to mothers
with cookie jars to fill,
and funny lullabies to sing
when dusk blows down the hill!
Who scrub the small children's faces
when early school bells ring;
and let a boy bring puppies home,
or bugs, or anything.

God, be kind to mothers
when it is candle-time
and children's rounded voices
say prayers in ordered rhyme.
May there be special blessings
at night, when houses sleep,
on all the mothers everywhere
who have child hearts to keep.
                                                 Helen Welshimer

Happy Mother's Day to to my mom, mother-in-law, Nana Stone and Grandma Judy... and to so many other "mothers" that have shaped my life.  I am so thankful for your godly example and love.
