A Mother's Task
and bring her babe from heaven;
to nourish from her strength, to pray
for wisdom fully given.
To Love and bless the little life
and guard it every hour.
To sow the seed of truth and right
that from its heart shall flower.
To help the little eyes to see
the beautiful and good.
The Lips to speak more tenderly
thank God for daily food.
To teach the little hands to do
some kindly deed each day.
To guide the feet that they may go
the straight and perfect way.
A hand on fevered brow to press
or wipe away the tears.
And build a home of happiness
for youthful fleeting years.
And then at last when duties end
in gentle prayer to ask
that she may be a faithful friend
for that's a Mother's Task.
Written by my Grandmother
Arlene Bentley Hoerig
Because you are Special to me...
I'm sending you a Hug!
