What is a Mother?

A mother’s a giver of hugs and kisses,

A teller of stories and tales,

A server of pizza

and chocolate milk shakes,

A finder of yo-yo’s and snails…


A mother’s a baker of cakes and pies,

A buyer of blue jeans and shirts,

A fixer of zippers

and tattered school books,

A mender of heartaches and hurts.


A mother’s a genius

with a knack for finding

A missing umbrella or glove,

A mother’s a friend you always rely on

But mostly, she’s someone to love.

I did not write this, it was on a magnet on our refrigerator, without the name of the author.
