Our Mom

Our Mom

Our mom came from a humble birth
But was given a great mission when she came to earth.
Her task was not of the common kind
But a worthier servant you’ll find.

She bore six sons and 3 daughters too,
And did all the things that good mothers do,
And then went on to do even more,
Along with the laundry and vacuuming the floor.

She learned to cook, and sew & plant,
and stored up food like a little ant.
She studied Literature, history & art,
And improved her life, every part.

Her virtue is shown in all that she does,
And her family knows of it because,
Her faith never waivers, she steadfast and true
And has lived by her word her whole life through.

The gospel is dear to her heart and we know,
She’s got that special, heavenly glow.
Her goodness rubs off to all who come near,
To all who know her she’s special, that’s clear.

Her family come first in her life and her heart,
And being a grandmother is quite a great art,
But she plays her role with creativity and flare,
Shows the whole world she can take a dare!

California adventure has nothing on her,
As she tackles the scariest ride with a “sure!”
She can ride a roller coaster with pride,
And if she get’s nervous, she keeps it inside!

She the nicest mom and the coolest granny,
And how she always says the right thing is uncanny.
She deserves our praise and probably some flowers,
But I hope she know we’re glad she is our!

We love you mom!
