A Precious Mother

hold their children's hands
for a while,
but their hearts forever.

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He molded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.
- Pat O'Reilly -

A Precious Mother

Mom, you've given me so much,
Love from your heart
and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life,
and you're a friend to me.
We have a very special bond
which only comes from God. . .
I'm sure you would agree.

As a child I would say,
"Mommy, I love you."
Now you're my mother so dear
I love you even more
with each and every new year.

If I could have chosen,
I would have picked no other
for you to be my lifelong friend
and my precious mother.

A mother is a treasured gift
Of love that's deep and true.
You know she's always standing by 
To guide and comfort you.
A mother, with unfailing strength
Can keep you safe from harm. . .
And yet you feel the softness of
Her gentle grace and charm.
A mother gives encouragement
With wisdom and a smile;
She understands your hopes and dreams
And makes them seem worthwhile.
A mother is always in your heart
Wherever you may go. . .
She's part of of everything you do,
That's why you love her so.

I cannot deny that I have a very precious mother.
A mother that has been there for me through thick and thin,
loved me unconditionally,
knows me inside and out. . .
a mother that is my closest friend.

I am blessed and on this Mother's Day
I can't help but thank the Lord for my mother,
and thank my mother for being the mom
that makes my life beautiful.

To those of you who are mothers
may I wish you a most wonderful Mother's Day.
Your family is incredibly blessed to have YOU
for you are the sunshine and joy in their lives.

Thank you for those touching sentimental words of love, straight from your dear heart.
I have been blessed in deed with the honor of being a mother to two lovely daughters who have also graced my life with four handsome grand grandsons.
The joy of a mothers and grandmothers heart is a beautiful thing this life affords us.

That is a beautiful tribute to your mother and a joy and a blessing to read. God has blessed we mothers with a special love for our children that has no comparison. Children are God's gift to us and treasures beyond compare. I thank Him each day several times the day for the privilege of having children.

Good afternoon, dear Stephanie!
Oh what a joy to think of my dear mom and dear sweet mothers like yours that our gracious Lord has given us as I read through each and every beautiful quote and gazed at each glorious photo. Oh, the soft color and gentility of the flowers and pearls♥ It is hard to choose a favorite quote or poem, but that Pat O'Reilly poem was indeed such a treasure of sentiments to read.
I pray both you and your sweet mom had a most blessed and memorable Mother's day with your family!!!♥
Thank you so much for blessing my heart and days with your comments, also, sweet friend- I wanted to tell you what a joy it was to read your most recent note including that you still use the embroidered bookmark! Oh how that made my heart smile :) ...it made me also think on what a special thing it is to get to create gifts for dear friends and how I cherish the lovely embellished ornament you made for me years back. When not being used as an ornament, it hangs at the entry to our sewing room and is a delight! Thank you so much for your blessed friendship♥

Love and many blessings!

This is a beautiful post for all Mother's. You are truly blessed to have your Mom and then your son is truly blessed for having you, who has had the best example your whole life.

A beautiful tribute to your mother! Truly you are both blessed to have each other! There are not enough words in the English language to share how deeply and how much we love our mothers. You came close :) Such a lovely collection of quotes, thoughts and anecdotes about mothers! I love the sweet pictures you shared as well, love those gorgeous pink roses :) May the Lord bless you richly sweet friend :)
