Thoughts of Mom

Saturday I posted some sentiment about mothers. Yesterday was spent helping my wife Donna, the Mother of my four children to enjoy mothers day. I gave her both an edible fruit bouquet and a traditional flower bouquet. After church we enjoyed an exceptionally wonderful buffet served at one branch of Bucci's, a locally favorite restaurant. Two of our sons were able to join us for dinner then they came home and spent the remainder of the afternoon working around the house to accomplish some projects which she has been wanting to get done. She tells me that she had a wonderful day.

The following is more sentiment which, although it was included with the clues for my Hanami letterbox, I wanted to share with a wider audience. It is a slightly modified version of a poem which was found on the Internet without attribution.

What is a Mom?

A mom is one of God's best gifts,
Someone to treasure all life through,
She's caring and loving,
Thoughtful and true,
Someone who is always a special part of your life,
Someone who holds a prime place in your heart,
She's a mentor, a confident and also a friend,
Someone on whose love you can depend.
A mom always has your best interests at heart,
She's someone so dear and so good,

She's a blessing, she's a gift,
She's a treasure like no other,
She's someone that is truly wonderful.
Wherever you go, and whatever you do,
A mom’s love will always see you through,
A mom is truly invaluable,
Indispensable and unforgettable.
I wouldn't want anyone but her,
And that's why I'm so grateful,
that God picked her for me.
