Happy Mother’s day on the 13 May 2012

A Recipe for a Very Dear Mother:
Take a cup of thoughtfulness
And add a lot of love,
Blend with smiles as warming
As the sunshine from above,
Add a cheerful spirit
And, of course, a heart that sings
And also the ability
To laugh at little things,
Stir in lots of tenderness
And understanding, too
And there you have the recipe
For mothers dear as you.

“A Mother is like a flower
On a sunny summer day.
You’d pick her in a minute
If you could have your way.

A Mother is like the sunshine;
She warms your heart each day
And makes you feel like smiling.
It’s just her special way.”


“I had a mother who read me the things
That wholesome life to the boy’s heart brings –
Stories that stir with an upward touch,
Oh that each mother of boys were such!

You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be –
I had a mother who read to me.”
