Happy Belated Mothers Day

I know I'm a little late and I truly apologize.  Hopefully, this poem will put me back in the  Good Graces of all Mothers.

 Mothers What Do They Do? by Carl Copeland
Dedicated to Christine Lee Copeland (May God Rest Her Soul) and Ethel Lee Hendricks/ Sisters and Mothers

Mothers what do they do?
What  are they about?
Do they take care of your bumps and bruises?
Are they the first to ask “What is wrong when you pout?

Do they clean your clothes and make sure food is on your plate?
Do they ready you for school, clothes laid out so you won’t be late?

Remember you got real sick and she pulled your head to her bosom and cradled your head
If need be she “robotussined and vaporized” you up and took you upstairs to tuck you in bed

Parents school visitations even though you got all A’s
When you get there the Teacher says “ This report card is good but He’s
been acting up these last few days”.

Walking around the house moping along
Walk by your Brother, your Sister, and your Father not a look or even a word
But your Mother stops you she senses that something is wrong

Maybe you did something crazy ok stupid, She may be mad but slow to curse
She instills in you that it could be worse, maybe even share with you a Bible verse
Now you’re  all  grown up with kids of your own
Thank God for the seeds that your Mother has sown

Don’t take Mothers for granted for it is not a  Mystery
What would we have done without Mothers?
One of God’s Greatest Gifts it’s written all thru History.

Take time to show Mothers the Caring, Compassion and the  Love
The same she showed you don't need to wait until we are all in  Heaven above 

Now there's no need to be confused or have some doubt about
What Mothers Do and What they are about?

'Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you on the land which the LORD your God gives you. Deuteronomy 5:16
God Bless
