I Said A Mother’s Prayer For You
I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you’ve shown me through the years,
for the closeness we’ve enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you’ve done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!

Pink Dawn Flower Vase For Mother
Pink Dawn Flower Vase For Mother

My Mother Kept A Garden
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it’s start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

Sweet Surprise Flowers for Mother

A Precious Mother
Mom You’ve given me so much,
Love from your heart
and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life and you’re a friend to me.
We have a very Special Bond
which only comes from God…
I’m sure you agree.
As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
Now you’re my Mother so dear
I love you even more
with each and every new year.
If I could had chosen,
I would have picked no other.
Than for you…to be my lifelong friend
and Precious Mother.

As I Look Back…
As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering…
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?
For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you
for the simple things…
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we’ve shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now…
and I am hoping that you’ve known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.

Have A Great Day
Have A Great Day

When You Have A Mother

When you have a mother
who cares so much for you
that anything you want
becomes her desires
When you have a mother
who is so understanding that
no matter what is bothering you
she can make you smile
When you have a mother
who is so strong that
no matter what obstacles she faces
she is always confident in front of you
When you have a mother
who actively pursues her goals in life
but includes you in all her goals
you are very lucky indeed
Having a mother like this
makes it easy to grow up
into a loving, strong adult
Thank you for being this kind
of wonderful mother.

Calling on Husbands! Surprise your Wife on Mother’s Day

Antique Lace Flower Bouquet M200 by Teleflora
Antique Lace Flower Bouquet M200 by Teleflora

Okay men! Has your wife bore you children? Does that not make her a mother? A question I am asked frequently is “Why should I give my wife flowers on Mother’s Day? She isn’t my mom.” Ask yourself this, if she is a mom, and she is dear to your heart, then the proper etiquette is to acknowledge her on Mother’s Day. After all, does she or does she not tend to the children in your home? A mother is a full time job, and not taking anything away from a father’s role (you have your day too by the way), taking one day out of the year to acknowledge this isn’t going to hurt any husband and in return, you make the woman of the household very happy! And remember guys, if mom isn’t happy, no one is happy!

Here are some suggestions to help you pay honor to the woman who rears the kids 24/7 365 days out of the year, with asking nothing in return but just a little love.

  • Flowers are always a win, but there is no need to stop there if you really want your wife to shine this Mother’s Day. Consider adding a assortment of candies or chocolate to the flowers, or a balloon bouquet to add to the celebration.
  • Clean the house and do all the laundry. (The dreaded never ending task! That on will score you big as long as you don’t ruin any clothes.) Get the kids to help!
  • Can you cook? Hook up a special meal (preferably her favorite if you can) and have the table set with candlelights and flowers! If you can’t cook, make reservations to her favorite restaurant.
  • Get her vehicle detailed or you and the kids can have fun together washing the car inside and out while you set mom up with a nice relaxing bubble bath all set with candles and a single red rose! Run the car to the gas station and fill it up while you are at it.
  • Handle all child conflicts. Allow nothing to slip passed you to mom.
  • Make arrangements for the kids to go to the sitter and plan a romantic evening out on the town followed up with a peaceful evening for just the two of you.
  • Make time! Clear your calendar! Give the day to her! If you cannot devote the day to her because of a work conflict, then make sure you give her a day you can and then make sure you follow through.

The best gift you can give your wife this Mother’s Day is acknowledgement for all that she does do for you and the children. Express to her how much she is appreciated in words and gestures of love. Make sure she feels the day is about her because you do actually appreciate and love her, and not just because it is a day on the calendar that dictates so. If women are reading this, feel free to add suggestions in comments to help the men out. For you men reading, add your suggestions of ideas that scored big points for you on Mother’s Day.

How Kids can Surprise Mom on Mother’s Day.

Okay, this is for the kids, or the father, aunts, uncles, grandparents, caretakers, or what not of a child looking for ways to surprise their mom this Mother’s Day. A sure fire gift that will always put a sparkle in any moms eyes from their kids is a homemade card expressing their love for mom. Add that card with a bouquet of flowers and you will have mommy wrapped around your little finger. Other top choices moms love is chocolates and candy. However, besides flowers and candy, there are tons of other ways you can surprise mom on Mother’s Day that she will surely love. Here are a few suggestions that will make this Mother’s Day extra special for your mom:

  • Have an adult if you are not old enough to work an oven, help you bake your mom’s favorite cake and have it waiting on the table with a beautiful vase of flowers on the table.
  • Serve mom breakfast in bed with a single rose in a vase. (Have an adult help if you are not old enough to cook, or else mom will be just as happy with a bowl of cereal and a cup of juice.
  • Want to surprise her huge? Lean your room the Saturday before Mother’s Day! Maybe even pick up your toys from other rooms of the house too!
  • Older kids can plan an elegant supper, prepare it, and clean up afterwards. Don’t forget the flowers for the table with a special card reminding her of how special she is to you.
  • Again for older children. How about washing mom’s car? Don’t forget to clean the inside out to. You know, under the seats and what not where the candy wrappers are dropped and toys are left. The younger siblings can even help out.
  • Older kids can offer up their services of a full house cleaning, complete with a flower bouquet to top off all the newfound shine!
  • How about a day at the spa? If there is more than one child in the family, this is a great one for kids of any age (except maybe for the 5 and under group) where you can combine your allowances and give your mom a day of pampering. Don’t get an allowance – how about giving mom a good foot rub or a neck and shoulder massage? You can follow up with running mom a nice warm bath with flowers and candles. If you are not old enough, let dad, mom, or someone else light the candles.
  • Mom’s love gifts from the heart so you are always safe making your mom something special for Mother’s Day no matter what your age is.
  • For those of you who have grown, moved away from home, or are in the service, make sure you call mom on Mother’s Day. If you are unable to call, write her a handwritten letter with your heart felt feelings about why she is so special to you and how you wish you were there to help celebrate such a wonderful day in both of you alls life. Sending flowers can express many of your feelings and is a great way to acknowledge your mom on Mother’s Day, but your words to compliment those flowers will mean more to your mother than anything else will in the world.
