I love the words of this poem, they give such inspiration to the many hats a mother wears while caring for her family and finding time to decorate and turn her house into a home. I wasn’t able to find a bio on this author, but she is or was an amazing writer.
God’s Special Creation
The hand that rocks the cradle
also makes the house a home.
It is the prayers of the mother
that keeps the family strong.
Mother rises early in the morning
and bathes her day in prayer.
She talks to God about her family
and places them in His care.
Mother communicates her love
in a thousand different ways.
When there’s a need, she is there,
whether it is night or day.
Mother seasons life with love
and gives so much of herself.
God placed in her the best He had
and made her unlike anyone else.
When challenges come our way
and when trials block our view,
Mother kneels down beside her bed
and prays the family through.
Mother is God’s special creation.
She is a light shining in the dark,
illuminating the path for her family
and pointing them toward God.

Most poems are over my pointy head but this one I get completely.
Hi Max, I hope you and your family had a wonderful weekend, and your wife enjoyed Mother’s Day.
I read this poem to my mother, and she along with my siblings enjoyed it.
It stuck with me the first time I read it.
We sure did…I’m happy you all had a good one. Every mothers day I miss my mother more.
Thank you…we really did have a good time.
I’m sure you do miss your mother more each Mother’s Day. A mother’s love for her children is so special, even after that child has grown into an adult, there are times when we just need our mother’s loving touch or to hear her voice. Hang in there, Max, she is smiling and sending love to you from the heavens above.
