Mothers are a special gift, sent down from God above. To share a bit of heaven with all her tender love. You see she works not for herself, but for her family’s care. So lovingly she carries, the load she must bear. So many times her labours go unseen by other’s eyes. They do not know of all the prayers or many tears she cries. Yet through the joy and through the pain, from day to day she gives. To see her family happy is the reason that she lives. So now we thank you mother, we know we can’t repay. For all that you have given, each and every day. ~Debbie Portwood.
