Age makes little difference when a mother you are, And as you grow older, seems you’re more precious by far;
For your children all love you whatever they do;
You’re forever their mother though they’ve grandchildren too.
They may always live near you, far away roam,
But their thoughts turn often to Mother and home
Though long years have passed since they sat at your knee,
They will always be children in your memory.
You may sometimes be busy with a many a care
Or you may only sit in your favorite chair.
You may no longer have need of your old dusting cap,
And often your hands just rest in your lap.
You’ve given so much in this life you’ve been living,
And as years go by, you still keep on giving.
You give, as in sympathy you shed but a tear;
You give when you smile and call someone ” dear”
It may not seem much, but you help every day-
To chase away shadows that might darken the way;
You help as you sing when others feel blue;
You’ll always be helping by just being you.
So mothers, all mothers, we want each to know
Your children love you though they forget to say so;
And each of us here, as child young or old,
Knows that you’re loved, but you want to be told.
So now we would like to show in some little way
That we think of the oldest as special today;
And because you have lived more years than another, Today, Mom you are my honored Mother!

2.Laugh it off. Don’t take life to seriously. Laughter is the best medicine.
3. Live honest and be kind to everyone and love everyone.
4. As a women you do not need a man to complete you or make you happy in life ( only you can do that) One is a whole number.
5.Never let a man or anyone abuse you. If you have to leave a man do it when he is at work. lol she really told me this :)
6. You can do anything you put your mind to do. Believe in yourself.
7. Women are stronger then they think.
8. Pray and listen.
9. Don’t cuss, gossip, lie or think you are better then anyone else.
10. Forgive Often and Always.
My mom has been my biggest supporter in life. I love her dearly. We laugh all the time. I would not be the woman that I am today without my loving mother. She is my rock, my best friend and my biggest FAN and she loves me unconditional. She is wonderful example of what strong and courageous looks like. Thank you Mom for being my mother! xoxo Feel free to leave advice or comments what you learned from your mom in the comments section. As always we would love to hear from you.
