Children grow up wanting many things -
Little boys want puppies and swords and guns
Knives and ropes and anything fun
The girls love dolls and dresses andd playing house
They like glitter and crafts and lukewarm baths
But at the end of the day, what every child really wants is a mother to say "I love you"
Kinds and presidents and rulers of nations command millions by their very words, yet none is greater than a mother who simply says, "I love you
A mother's gentle kiss is better than any medicine or bandaid in the world
A story told by a mother is greater than all the movies and songs combined
At times her knowledge knows no bounds
Her prayers are so faithful they take a fast train to Heaven
Falling asleep on a thousand blankets cannot compare to falling asleep in mother's arms
She is soft and gentle and full of hope
Only mother has the ability to see her children through the eyes of God himself
She can see their future and she knows what they can become
Only a mother is brave enough to face and army alone for her child, yet meek enough to shed countless tears when her child is pained
A mother's physical, mental and emotional anguish goes largely unnoticed by the passing crowd, yet she presses forward, and all this because of her love of a child
No sleep, no money, no recognition, yet her inner beauty shows forth brighter and brigher each day
No single person can have a more profound impact on a child, a family, a community or a nation than a loving and devoted mother.
Thank God for Mothers!
