I’m wondering what plans my family will make for me on Mother’s Day. There are some that think that Mother’s Day is overrated but I’m here to tell you that there are millions of moms everywhere that just want to know that all of that running kids from here to there, changing dirty diapers, staying up all night with a sick child and being an advocate for your child at school when they’re bullied hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Being a mom is such a mixed bag…. Its absolutely the most loving and rewarding gift ever given to a woman yet at the same time the most challenging and difficult managing finances, schedules, sick kids, appointments, braces and more. Its hard but I would not give it up for all the money in the world.
Being a mom can leave you so proud of your child one minute and so embarrassed in another. Its crazy I know but there’s nothing I’d rather be doing. I’d lay my life down, fight a bear, an armed robber or anyone seeking true harm to my little ones. Here’s an original poem I wrote for Mother’s Day. Please feel free to share and use in cards and on line giving credit to Maggie Miller – mom of 5 great kids! I wrote 2 poems – 1 for mom’s that are still with us on earth and 1 for mom’s that are with God.
For Mom’s here with us on Earth:
Your love is like an ocean, so vast and so wide
A peaceful quiet shelter from the rain and the tide
You’ve always been my rock, with whom I hold strong
All blessing in my life, you helped me learn from all along
And now on this Mother’s day I give a special thanks to you
For the lessons that you taught me and the strength that you knew
Like Gods love for us all, steadfast and with you
Happy Mother’s Day mom!
For Moms that have passed:
Strength, honor and love were the fabrics you wore
Teaching me how to stand in front of Christ my Lord
You lead by example, honest living through and through
You were such a gift to the earth overlooked by a few
But you held your head high and filled me with love
The depth of your soul surely was sent from above
And now on this day God be with you in knowing
Because without you I would have never kept going
I love you mom. Happy Mother’s Day
