1: WHAT IS A MOTHER It takes a Mother's LOVE to make a house a home, A place to be remembered, no matter where we roam... It takes a Mother's PATIENCE to bring a child up right, And her COURAGE and her CHEERFULNESS to make a dark day bright...It takes a Mother's THOUGHTFULNESS to mend the heart's deep hurts," And her SKILL and her ENDURANCE to mend little socks and shirts... It takes a Mother's KINDNESS to forgive us when we err, To sympathize in trouble and bow her head in prayer...It takes a Mother's WISDOM to recognize our needs And to give us reassurance by her loving words and deeds... It takes a Mother's ENDLESS FAITH, her CONFIDENCE and TRUST To guide us through the pitfalls of selfishness and lust... And that is why in all this world there could not be another Who could fulfill God's purpose as completely as a MOTHER!
