Every Day Is Mother’s Day


Every day is Mother’s Day when you’re a Mother!
Now, just before dawn, a new day approaches, another
Day given. And it happens to be Mother’s Day.
But then I think, “Each one is mine; I’m a Mother every day.”

Lucky families have life, love, daily bread – all shared
On Mother’s Day. She’s told how much they’ve loved her and cared.
Each year’s more precious as we grow wiser and can understand
All that’s involved in being the best Mother that you can.
