A tribute to mothers

May 7, 2010
Tribune Staff Report

She has read us bedtime stories. Baked us our favorite cookies. Taught us how to drive. Helped with our homework. Attended our ball games and dance recitals. Kissed our boo-boos and much, much more.

Where we would be today without the love and support of our mothers?

Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 9 - a special day devoted to the love and care mothers provide all year.

Once every year on Mother's Day, we stop and take some time out to say thanks to our Moms. You may say thanks to your Mom with some Mother's day flowers, a gift, a meal out, or just a phone call.

Here's a poem which sums up all that mom's do.

What is a

Mother?

A Mother has so many things to do,

From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.

She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,

She bathes the children and washes their clothes.

When they forget to wash their faces clean,

And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,

Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?

Of course, that is what a Mother will do.

Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,?

Applying a bandage or giving them a pill??

Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework??

She must never her duty shirk.?

Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book??

For missing things she must look and look??

Who becomes a listener to every heartache,?

To every accomplishment that a child makes??

Who scolds their children when they are naughty,?

Or reminds them of God when they are too haughty??

Who tends her family with love and patience, too??

Of course that is what a Mother will do.?
