My name is ‘Mom’ to my two little boys,
In all of my life I’ve known no greater joys.
By Our Dear Lord I have surely been blest,
Of all of my ‘jobs’, this one's no doubt the best!
My hours are long, my breaks are few,
My paycheck is non-existent, it’s true.
But oh, the rewards, they come everyday,
In every form, in every way.
The kiss from my son with spaghetti-stained lips,
The constant boy-chatter on family trips.
The nondescript rock: ‘Mom, look at my treasure!’
Their gleaming blue eyes, a reward beyond measure.
The hugs, the I-love-you’s, the ‘Mom, don’t go’ plea,
The sleepy-time sweetness, oh how they love me.
My eyes fill with tears and my heart overflows,
How thankful I am, Our Loving Lord knows.
Indeed, I am blest, for God to me came,
He gave me these boys and He made ‘Mom’ my name.

A lovely Mother's Day to all Moms!
