    A Mother's Prayer
    On this Mother's Day and every day let me remember my responsibilities rather
    than my privileges as a mother. . .
    Let me be wise enough to love my children without possessing them.
    Let me be wise enough to earn their respect, not demand it.
    Let me be as understanding and patient with their mistakes as I am with my
    Above all, let me remember that these children of god have been graciously
    loaned to me so that together we may find the Christ in one another.
    Let me be thankful every moment of every day for this responsibility . . . a
    chance to serve others and to grow.

    A Mother's Heart
    I loved you from the very start,
    You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

    Our life together has just begun,
    You're part of me my little one.

    As mother with child, each day I grew,
    My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

    I'd day dream of the things we'd share,
    Like late night bottles and teddy bears.

    Like first steps and skinned knees,
    Like bedtime stories and ABC's.

    I thought of things you'd want to know,
    Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

    I thought of lessons I'd need to share,
    Like standing tall and playing fair.

    When I first saw your precious face,
    I prayed your life be touched with grace.

    I thanked the angels from above,
    and promised you unending love.

    Each night I lay you down to sleep,
    I gently kiss your head and cheek.

    I count your little fingers and toes,
    I memorize your eyes and nose.

    I linger at your nursery door,
    Awed each day I love you more.

    Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
    I whisper "I love you" every night.

    I loved you from the very start,
    You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

    As mother and child our journey's begun,
    My heart's your forever my little one.


    I gave you life,
    but cannot live it for you.

    I can give you directions,
    but I cannot be there to lead you.

    I can allow you freedom,
    but I cannot account for it.

    I can teach you right from wrong,
    but I cannot decide for you.

    I can offer you advice,
    but I cannot accept it for you.

    I can give you love,
    but I cannot force it upon you.

    I can teach you to share,
    but I cannot make you unselfish.

    I can teach you respect,
    but I cannot force you to show honor.

    I can advise you about friends,
    but cannot choose them for you.

    I can advise you about sex,
    but I cannot keep you pure.

    I can tell you about drink,
    but I can't say "no" for you.

    I can warn you about drugs,
    but I can't prevent you from using them.

    I can tell you about lofty goals,
    but I can't achieve them for you.

    I can teach you about kindness,
    but I can't force you to be gracious.

    I can pray for you,
    but I cannot make you walk with God.

    I can tell you how to live,
    but I cannot give you eternal life.


    Before I was a Mom
    I made and ate hot meals.
    I had unstained clothing.
    I had quiet conversations on the phone.
    Before I was a Mom

    I slept as late as I wanted.
    I never worried about how late I got to bed.
    I soaked for as long as I wanted in my bubble bath.
    Before I was a Mom

    I cleaned my house each day.
    I never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies.
    I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
    Before I was a Mom

    I had never been puked on
    Pooped on
    Spit on
    Chewed on
    Peed on
    Before I was a Mom

    I had complete control of
    My thoughts
    My body
    And my mind.
    Before I was a Mom

    I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
    I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
    I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
    Before I was a Mom

    I never held a sleeping baby just because
    I didn't want to put it down.
    I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the
    Before I was a Mom

    I never knew that something so small
    Could affect my life so much.
    I never knew that I could love someone so much.
    I never knew I would love being a Mom.
    Before I was a Mom

    I had never known the warmth
    The joy
    The love
    The wonderment
    The heartache
    Or the satisfaction of being a Mom...

    What is a Mother?
    Mothers look different from other women. Their hair isn't always done in the
    latest style, and sometimes, it isn't done at all.
    A Mother is a woman who can bake a cake with four other hands helping her and
    still have it turn out fine. A Mother's shoulders smell of sour milk, and if
    you are very observant, you'll notice safety-pin holes in her clothes.
    Mothers frequently have runs in their stocking. Likely as not, sissy forgot
    to park her trike off the sidewalk.
    A mother is different. She likes chicken wings and backs and the hamburger
    that is slightly burned -- things the kids and Daddy don't care for. She
    never takes the last chop on the plate, and she always saves the candy from
    her plate at the restaurant for the kids later.
    A mother may not have ulcers, but she has versatile tears. They show anger,
    weariness, hurt or happiness. Once when Daddy forgot an anniversary, Mother
    cried. One Saturday, he brought home chocolates when it wasn't her birthday
    or anything, and she cried then, too.
    A mother is someone who can repair the kitchen sink with only her hands --
    after Daddy has spent the whole afternoon trying with tools and plenty of
    cuss words.
    When a mother dies, she must face Him with her record of accomplishments. If
    she's done a good job of caring for her children, she'll get he most
    sought-after position in heaven, that of rocking baby angels on soft white


    Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day
    with little time to stop and pray,
    for life has been anything but calm
    since you decided to make me a MOM!

    Running errands and matching socks
    building dreams with wooden blocks,
    cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
    and other stuff that children lose.

    Fitting lids on bottled bugs
    wiping tears and giving hugs,
    a stack of last weeks mail to read
    so where is the quiet time I need?

    When I ask the blessing of your grace
    I see then in my small ones face,
    that you have blessed me all the while
    and I stoop to kiss that precious smile!
