Happy Mother’s Day

“Happy Mother’s Day” means more

Than have a happy day.

Within those words lie lots of things

We never get to say.

It means I love you first of all,

Then thanks for all you do.

It means you mean a lot to me,

And that I honor you.

But most of all, I guess it means

That I am thinking of

Your happiness on this, your day,

With pleasure and with love.

A worthy woman who can find?
For her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband trusteth in her…
Her children rise up, and call her blessed;
Her husband praiseth her saying,
Many daughters have done worthily,
but thou excellest them all.

– from Proverbs 31
