There is a mother I knowSo awesome to beholdWonderful arms, great for huggingA beautiful heart, great for lovingThis mother I know
I've yelled at her, hit her, made her sadI've shattered her strength, I felt so badHugging and forgiveness, I wanted to cryThis mother I know
What's her name, this mother I knowWife of my daddy, daughter of NinnieJust the greatest mother I knowThis mother I know
Hugger, kisser, my greatest loveFaithful even after the very endLoving, kind, great to hugThis mother I know
I'll kiss, love you, may you seeThis love I hold inside of meI'm a sinner; sadly it's trueBut filled with love for dad, God and youThis mother I know
May you and me, hug and kissThrough our lives, oh I don't want to missWe'll grow together, though not the same ageBut that won't stop the love from me to you

I just got back from being out of town. I left on my birthday so the kids waited to give me my presents when I got back. I got a wonderful candle that smells just perfect, a great drawing and note from my son, a paper with coupons to redeem like "no laundry" or "no cooking", and a poem that brought instant sweet tears to my eyes. As I read it, I just cried and cried-it was so touching. My oldest daughter wrote it by modifying a poem the Other Nut wrote for me a while back (one day soon maybe I will share it). We didn't know it was her favorite poem or that she had modified it to be from her to me. It is something I will treasure forever. Please know that in sharing it, I am not trying to pat myself on the back-many days I don't live up to this poem (I'm so thankful for grace). I share it because I am a mom that is so proud of her children. My oldest daughter enjoys writing, and I thought I would share with you her love of it. I share it simply because it means a lot to me. So I hope you enjoy.
