Oh, where, oh where would I be without my Mother?
Now I know you just rolled your eyes and said, "OH BROTHER!" =)
But, hey you need to keep reading this you see...
To see where I'm heading with my poetry!
Of course, it doesn't take a genius to know
That without her I wouldn't be on this earth below.
But I was referring to all that she has taught me.
Our home was a sewing center, a culinary art school, and a bakery!
When God was passing out talents, He gave her quite a few!
Others have called her "The Martha Stewart of our movement" too.
Anything that Moma touches turns to pure Gold.
God even gave her a hair color where she'll never grow old! =)
She taught me how to be a good wife and Mother!
And to put Jesus first and then comes others!
She showed me how to set a pretty table.
And to depend on God...He is more than able!!
She's great with her 17 grandchildren who call her "Gram"
She loves "PORKY THE PIG" in forms of bacon and ham!! =D
She's gladly stood by her man..wherever God led
Winning the hearts of their people with her homemade bread!
She's touched lots of lives in several different states
And through it she's learned to cook all kinds of plates!
So you see her life lessons have been invaluable to me!
I love you Moma, you're the BEST!...signed...your baby!

Now my 2nd Mother I haven't known as long
But she's still special to me, don't get me wrong.
I first met this dear lady 18 years ago.
And we've had many special times I want you to know.
She's the Mom of the wonderful man whom I married.
My Phillip near her heart--for 9 months was carried.
She (& Dad) raised him to love Jesus, and taught him to pray---
Knowing him like I do-They did a great job I'd say.
His parents taught him to work and work hard too.
He's a HUGE help around our house I'm telling you!
I'm sure it wasn't easy to raise a son to "give away"
Dad and Mom, I THANK YOU!! We'll have to do it too someday!
Thank you for accepting and loving me like your girl.
You are the best and sweetest Mother-in-law in the world.
Mom, I love you and hope your day is as special as you are.
I wish we could be together- but Col. to AZ. is a tad far! Smile!
