I miss you Mum – Happy Mothers Day

“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means that she’s only growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right or wrong she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

    Hi Cate and thank you. It's the little things that get you every now and then. Sitting at work last week I thought I'd better give Mum a call and realised that I couldn't. Today has been OK though.

    Every Spring our church would have a Mother-Daughter Banquet served by the men. It was a special, fun time when we were young, and this song was always sung. Thank you for reviving the memory! Like you, I miss my Mom at times like this, and every day. I think how blessed we were to have them. Some kids weren't so lucky.
