Women have strengths that amaze men.  They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.  They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry.  They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.  They fight for what they  believe in. They stand up to injustice.  They don’t take “no for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.  They go without so their family can have.  They love unconditionally. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.


They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.  Their hearts break when a friend dies.  They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.  They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.  They’ll drive, fly, walk, run, or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.  The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.  They bring joy, hope and love.  They have compassion and ideas.  They give moral support to their family and friends.  Women have vital things to say and everything to give.  However, if there is one flaw in women, it is that they forget their worth!!! 

‘A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.’ ~Washington Irving   Happy MOTHER’S DAY to Women Everywhere !!


 To Mom

You are the sunlight in my day,
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon,
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life,
How not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me,
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it’s time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream,
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love,
I’m blessed for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul

You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my Mom.

The below has been in another Mother’s Day blog of mine. I love it so much I just had to share it once again.  A tribute to moms everywhere sung by the famed Alex Sharpe (former Celtic Woman):

  1. This is so beautiful, John, Thanks so much for sending to me. I think Jana is in charge of our Mother’s Day lunch Sunday. She is a very good cook and we will be the recipient of it Sunday. She gave Daddy the assignment of bread. This will be her last Mother’s Day here as she is leaving for college at Liberty University in Virginia in August. Love you, John. ….Mom
