What is a Mother?

A mother can be almost any size or age, but she won't admit to anything over thirty.
A mother has soft hands and smells good. A mother likes new dresses, music, a clean house, her children's kisses, an automatic washer and Daddy.

A mother doesn't like having her children sick, muddy feet, temper tantrums, loud noise or bad report cards. A mother can read a thermometer (much to the amazement of Daddy) and like magic, can kiss a hurt away.

A mother can bake good cakes and pies but likes to see her children eat vegetables. A mother can stuff a fat baby into a snowsuit in seconds and can kiss sad little faces and make them smile.

A mother is underpaid, has long hours and gets very little rest. She worries too much about her children but she says she doesn't mind at all. And no matter how old her children are, she still likes to think of them as her little babies.

She is the guardian angel of the family, the queen, the tender hand of love. A mother is the best friend anyone ever has. A mother is love.

I pray that each of you has a wonderful Mother's Day! A very happy Mother's Day to my mom! I love you!

"And no matter how old her children are, she still likes to think of them as her little babies."

Tracy, Happy Mother's Day to you also. The poem is just perfect and true. We can do all those things, and we don't mind at all. In fact, we totally LOVE it. It is so great to be a MOMMY!!!
