“Thank you, Mommy!”: A Mother’s Day Poem from Grateful Kids

mommy and child

Dear Mommy,

Thank you for your love and care;

No matter what, you’re always there.

Through restless days and sleepless nights,

you give us hugs and calm our frights;

you wipe our eyes and soothe our fears

You fill our lives with hope and cheer.

You feed us, teach us, train and lead us

with grace and joy and great delight,

imparting blessings left and right.

You serve and serve with all your might.

Though sometimes faint, yet always going

your life, your warmth to us is showing:

love for God and for His Word.

Thank you, Mommy,

We’re the happiest kids in the world!”

Happy Mother’s Day!  I know of no other role that demands more energy and brings more blessing than that of a mother.  When you live your entire life in service to others, God takes particular note of your sacrifice.

  • Mark 8:35 “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.”
  • Proverbs 11:25 “Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”

May the one who refreshes others herself be refreshed!  May God Himself refresh you today and every day continually, for His Glory.

You ARE making a difference and we are grateful!

  1. Craig, and Stuart and Tyson as your Mother, I pray that you never forget daily what your wives do to make your home a loving, peaceful place for you to enter and enjoy your life and family… It takes creativity hourly, and more love than is imagined. That is the first hour or two! Cleaning, laundry, bathing, ironing, teaching, dishes, food preparation, grocercy shopping, incidentles come in odd hours, between naps, ball games, meals and church services, and invitations to others…….all done by your home maker and partner in all that is good and pure and still keeping your marriage alive and date nights and special ‘time outs’ together. Thank the Lord. Happy Mother’s Day to your wonderful wives! God Did Well for you and my prayers were answered!Now10more blessings! Love to you all, Your Mother, Mother-in-law, Grand-mother Mimi
