WITH THANKSGIVING FOR OUR MOTHERS

Blessed is the mother who understands her child
For she shall inherit a kingdom of memories.
Blessed is the mother who knows how to comfort,
For she shall possess a child’s devotion.
Blessed is the mother who guides by the path of righteousness,
For she shall be proud of her offspring.
Blessed is the mother who is never shocked,
For she shall receive confidences.
Blessed is the mother who teaches respect,
For she shall be respected.
Blessed is the mother who emphasizes the good
And minimizes the bad, for in like manner
The child shall make evaluations.

Blessed is the mother who treats her child as she would be treated,
For her home shall be filled with happiness.
Blessed is the mother who answers simply the startling questions
For she shall be trusted.
Blessed is the mother who has character strong
Enough to withstand the thoughtless remarks
And resentments of the growing child,
For, again, in due time, she shall be honored.
