For You, Mom

If I could give you diamonds
For each tear you cried for me...
If I could give you sapphires
For each truth you've helped me see...
If I could give you rubies
For the heartache that you've known...
If I could give you pearls
For the wisdom you have shown

Then you'd have a treasure, Mother
That would mount up to the skies
That would almost match the sparkle
In your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds
As, I'm sure, you're well aware
So I'll give you gifts more precious...
My devotion, love and care.

I got this poem from the net.
I would give credit to whoever wrote it...
But it was written by anonymous.

It is exactly the way I feel.
My Mother has always been there for me.
She is my closest, dearest friend on this earth.
(Other than my husband)
I know that nothing I could ever do
Would cause her to not love me.
Her love is unconditional...
because I am her daughter.

What a great picture of the Saviour's Love!

I love you Mom!
