Blue Ribbon

Posted by Christina Morley |

You might not receive a blue ribbon
at the end of the day
And being a mother is not
a job that will pay
But your reward is the journey
every step of the way
And “Well done!” are the words
that my Father will say.

Mother Acrostic

Posted by Christina Morley |

Mom, here’s my chance to share today
On the special things you do and say
Thank you for all the love and prayer
Helping me through every care
Especially for your listening ear
Regardless of your busy day

Thank you, Mom, in every way.

Have a Happy Mother’s Day!

A mother is a person to cherish
Her love she does so readily lavish
She gives of her time to everyone
And a mother’s work is never done

A mother will sacrifice here and there
She’ll not withhold and will always share
We will never know how hard it is
Until one day we have our own kids

So thank you, Mother, for all that you do
We want you to know how much we love you
And we pray that this Mother’s Day will be
Blessed with many a happy memory

To Be a Mother

Posted by Christina Morley |

These are my four kids. I'll be posting Mother's Day card making ideas on my 1camera1mom blog for all the scrapbooking and card making moms and kids out there. You can add your own Mother's Day poem or use one of mine. I'll be adding a couple more this week to choose from.

To be a mother means…
You’re a “Home Exec,” a fancy name for doing jobs that no one sees
There are people who think that running a home must be a breeze
Daily you are finding lost items, washing dishes and making the bed
It’s not rocket science, but sometimes you think you’re losing your head

To be a mother means…
As you fold the clothes, you realize just how much the kids’ have grown
You still remember miniature sizes and wonder how the time has flown
Now you’re not “cool,” but in those days you were their sun and moon
And as they gain their independence, they’ll be leaving home soon

To be a mother means…
You have the hardest task of letting go and letting them fly
And when you’re alone, you know that you’ll cry
But once they’re gone, they’ll always know where to find you
Because you’ll always be their mother, no matter what they do
