I learned from my dear Mother that the Glass is always half-full at least.
Here’s a poem in her memory this Mother’s Day Week:
MOTHERS–OUR NATIONAL TREASURES
“I have eyes in the back of my head”
My dear Mother used to say;
A Mother knows and understands What a child does not even say.
A Mother’s arms are made for tenderness
Loving ears for compassionate care;
Her dancing eyes are eager to observe
What truly is happening there.
Her grand heart is ever open
All 241 hours of every day;
A Mother knows and understands
What her child does not have to say;
Her wise advice follows her offspring
All along life’s bustling way
Understanding Mothers are National treasures
May God Bless all our dear Mothers today.
