Inexperience is permitted,
No special skills required,
Must love kids and pets,
Eager attitude desired.
A loving heart's essential,
Soft, gentleness, a plus,
A kindly, warm demeanor,
Combined with tenderness.
Add agility of body,
And dexterity of hands,
Both can be instinctive,
But be ready on demand.
Have good ears, with which to hear,
Sharp eyes, with which to see,
Arms strong enough for hugging,
And a spirit, fancy-free.
Can speak to God in heaven,
Have folded hands to pray.
Have ability to guide and teach,
And ability to play.
Can cook, and bake, and clean, and sew,
Can nurture little souls,
Know how to hold on tightly
And how to hold, when letting go.
Mothers some day return to God,
Yet, never do depart,
A mother's love, eternal love,
Forever in one's heart.

God's most precious work of art
is the warmth and love of a mother's heart.
Happy Mother's Day to each of you.
This holiday is one that brings so many memories.
Memories of my own children, when they were small.
Memories of my beautiful mom. I can still hear her praying and singing, even though she has been gone for 19 years.
I'm sure that you have special memories too of wonderful times spent with your moms.
Cherish your mother if she is still with you.
God's blessings to all of you as you celebrate your mom and being a mom.
Love and Prayers,
