Tribute to Mothers



 


THAT WONDERFUL MOTHER OF MINE

The moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
The birds never sing but a message they bring
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
Just to bring back the time, that was so sweet to me,
Just to bring back the days, when I sat on her knee.

I pray ev'ry night to our Father above,
For that wonderful mother of mine.
I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
That -- wonderful mother of mine.
There are treasures on earth, that made life seem worthwhile,
But there's none can compare to my mother's smile.
(Refrain)

You are a wonderful mother, dear old Mother of mine.
You'll hold a spot down deep in my heart,
'Till the stars no longer shine.
Your soul shall live on forever,
On through the fields of time.
For there'll never be another to me,
Like that wonderful Mother of mine.
~ Clyde Hager


 


"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life."
~ Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to
my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and
physical education I received from her."
~ George Washington (1732-1799)

"Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother."
~ Lin Yutang

"Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; A mother's
secret hope outlives them all."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894)

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you
will always find forgiveness."
~ Honore' de Balzac (1799-1850)


"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom."
~  Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887)


 

 


For GrannyDancer ~

Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,
Restoring the sense that our most precious things
Are those that do not change much over time.
No love of childhood is more sublime,
Demanding little, giving much on demand,
More inclined than most to grant the wings
On which we fly off to enchanted lands.
Though grandmothers must sometimes serve as mothers,
Helping out, or maybe taking over,
Each has all the patience wisdom brings,
Remembering our passions more than others,
Singing childish songs we long remember.
