Mother's Day Dedication

May the Blessed Mother come into your life today
with a special blessing for you.
May you always be grateful for the Blessed Mother.
Without her we would not have Jesus. Our Saviour.
We were all born to love and care and women were born to be Mothers in an especially loving and caring way. In one way or another we are all Mothers ~ I dedicate this posting to all who are in any way mothers, those that are birth mothers, those who are adoptive or foster mothers, those who as a mother care for the upbringing of little ones especially aunts, grandmas, sisters, carers, teachers, religious persons, even dads who have taken on the role of Mum too. Especially I would like to dedicate this to my own Mum who is very special to me, I ask God to bless her and all the mothers of our family and all mothers out there who are reading this. I must not forget those who are taking care of Mothers (or parents) who can no longer take care of themselves...they are doing such a noble job. One last but very important dedication is to those who were nearly mothers but have lost their child in some way.


M is for the million things she gave me,
O means only that she's growing old,
T is for the tears she shed to save me,
H is for her heart of purest gold;
E is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
R means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER",
A word that means the world to me.
~Howard Johnson (c. 1915)~


Have you ever known someone
from before their birth,
Loved that person unconditionally
and known how much they're worth?
Have you ever held your child
close to your heart
And prayed that nothing would,
ever could, make you stay apart?
Have you ever sung them lullabies
Told them stories that were dear,
Dried their tears after a fall,
and taken away their fear?

And have you ever shared moments
to smell the pretty flowers
And admire the sky above
Or played in rain showers?
Have you found time to wonder with them
About the birds and the bees,
Looked at cloud formations,
Talked on how to preserve trees?

Have you ever seen their wonder
reflected in you...
And seen yourself time and again,
in them, through and through?
If you have ever shared these memories
One on one with the other,
Then deep within your heart you know
That you are A MOTHER!

Here is a lovely prayer/presentation I have come across and would like to share...


In this dedication, I must not forget my friends and all those who lovingly take care of their pets and all God's creatures in a warm motherly way.

You all know who you are!

Here is a great site for Kids for Mother's day...

Mother’s Day Prayer
God our Creator, we pray:
for new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for those who are tired, stressed or depressed;
for those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;
for those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for those whose children have physical, mental or emotional disabilities;
for those who have children they do not want;
for those who raise children on their own;
for those who have lost a child;
for those who care for the children of others;
for those whose children have left home;
and for those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled.
Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children to know and do what is good,
living not for themselves alone, but for God and for others.
Prayer taken from
Last but not least let us remember Mothers who have gone before us on faith...
may God grant them peace and everlasting joy in being with their Creator through eternity ~ their reward for their work and life here on earth.
