The dearest gifts that heaven holds,
the very finest too,
Were made into one pattern that was perfect, sweet, and true.
The angels smiled, well pleased, and said,
"Compared to all the others, This pattern is so wonderful let's use it just for mothers!"
And through the years, a mother has been all that's sweet and good,
 For there's a bit of God and Love in all true motherhood.
By: Helen Steiner Rice
I just love this poem. It just says it all.
 I love being a mommy to three very sweet boys.
They keep my life entertaining from the moment they get up to the moment they go to bed.
I am so blessed to be able to stay at home, teach them and to read with them. I'm blessed to have three boys that follow after Jesus. We are proud to call them Soldiers of Christ!
It's an honor to be their mom and I just wanted to encourage each mommy out there as you read this!
Fight the good fight and watch your children prosper!
Have a great week!

I loved the poem, and the sweet picture. I think we can make so many memories with our children when we read to them. And it is so important that we encourage one another.
Blessings Always, Roxy

Isn't it wonderful to cherish our children? So many in the world seem so bothered and tired of parenting...but it's the best!

Thank you for reminding us all of that!

Peace in Christ,

I love the poem and I love the precious picture... they're so sweet. Helen Steiner Rice is a classic, and I really love all of her poems. It is true, and there is no occupation I would rather have than Motherhood.
Love you Amy.
