What mothers are made of
« on: September 05, 2006, 09:52:37 PM »
She filled no chair of learning
She did not lead the styles
Not fame or fortune did she seek
or travel many miles.

She was no gay sophisticate
Nor much on pleasure bent.
But her life was very much worthwhile
My mother heaven sent.
Just sweet and unassuming,
and doing day by day.
The things God willed for her to do,
In her quite gentle way.
Steady uncomplaining.
When sacrifice was made
Hers was the truest culture.
The kind of life that paid.
Not in worldly goods stored up,
But example, strong and fine.
I'm sure God picks His angels
From mothers such as mine.
