They come in all different sizes and colors,
personalities and backrounds.
Some are controlling, some are outgoing.
Others are meek, and some very sleek.
We start out dependant on them,
and they may end up dependant on us.
There are moms who fulfill all their hopes
and dreams and then there are moms whose
dreams and aspirations are lived through
the lives of their children.
Most moms become grandmas who spoil their
grandchildren. They're allowed to do this
because they were moms already and survived!
Others lose touch with their children and are
very much alone.
Sometimes life is hard and seems very unfair.
Moms die young or in their prime.
Others become old and sickly.
Some go quick and some linger on and on......
Many moms are career moms,
while others labor at home.
Some are great cooks or bakers of cookies,
while others are artists, musicians or
needlepoint masters. We emulate them in
various ways and even pick up habits they'd
rather not pass on.
But no matter what the mom -
they all need love, affection,
prayer and forgiveness.
Young and old, big and small,
rich and poor, they're moms!
May they be as special to us as they are to God.
For in their wombs, we were all fearfully and wonderfully made.
