Mothers day verses

Mothers Flowers Verses

Life doesn't come with an instruction book.
That's why we have Mothers.

**********

WONDERFUL MOTHER

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.
-- Pat O'Reilly

Selection of flowers for Mothers Day.

I hugged this little card real tight,
I kissed it, Mommy, too.
And then I packed it full of love
And sent it off to you!

MOTHER'S SONGS

Songs my mother taught me,
In the days long vanish'd
Seldom from her eyelids
Were the teardrops banish'd.
Now I teach my children
Each melodious measure,
Oft the teardrops flowing,
Oft they flow from my mem'ry's treasure.
-- Author Unknown


A picture memory brings to me;
I look across the years and see
Myself beside my mother's knee.
I feel her gentle hand restrain
My selfish moods, and know again
A child's blind sense of wrong and pain.
But wiser now,
a man gray grown,
My childhood's needs are better known.
My mother's chastening love I own.
-- John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

``````````````

On Mother's Day, I'd like to say,
How precious, dear mother, you are.
You'll always be, in so many ways,
My very favorite star.

~~~~~~~~~~

The rose is red, the violet blue,
The gillyflower sweet, and so are you.
These are the words you taught me to say.
So give me a kiss on Mother's Day!

Richer than I you can never be --
