On this Mother’s Day,

Better than flowers in a bouquet,

I want to bless you Mom,

In a special kind of way.

Please know that this is true,

Of all the Moms that are living,

And that I could have been given,

I am grateful that God chose you.

Although life is not a breeze,

Your constant encouragement,

Gave me a loving environment,

To bloom with relative ease.

Through day and night,

I know your prayers for me,

Truly helped me see,

God’s redeeming light.

Having a beautiful family of my own,

I know what it means personally,

For you to still pray for me,

Even now that I am fully grown.

From my birth til even now,

Thank you Mom,

For always making me feel,

As if I wear a crown.

So on this Mother’s Day,

This is all I really want to say,

I love you Mom,

In a special kind of way.
