A special blessing from God,
A woman strong, loving and kind;
I am blessed God made her mine.
God knew I needed a caring mother;
That would be both anchor and rudder.
God has blessed me like no other;
He gave me a strong loving mother.
Making sure I knew wrong from right,
She would for me prayed every night.
As God placed the stars in their place,
He created my mother by His grace.
My mother did more than give me life,
She has stood by me in times of strife.
I know there are times we disagree;
But I’ve never doubted her love for me.
I look at her in wonder and admiration,
Nowhere have I seen such dedication.
Thank you Lord, for my loving mother,
I am truly blessed above any other.
