A Mother’s Love

by Lisa Ackerman

In honor of mothers day I searched for a poem to encapsulate the love we have for our kids. A popular and timeless poem describes a bit of how I feel on this journey. Perhaps you moms out there feel it too.

You work so hard. You care so much. We are sisters in the singular goal of loving, caring and healing our kids.

My one wish is for all of you moms (& some of my single dads friends doing both roles) to have a blessed and beautiful mothers day. Find that sweet spot or God willing a full day of joy. You work so hard and deserve this day.

A Mother’s Love

A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

    Lisa,

    Great poem. I truly believe that a mother’s love is the closest thing to God’s love that we can experience here on earth. To be loving, forgiving and all-accepting is so a part of being a mother.
