Sister To Sister


This coming Saturday will be Larry and my 28th wedding anniversary. Praise the Lord! The Lord truly blessed me when I married Larry! And in honor of him and his mother the following poem is written.. (sorry, author is unknown).

To His Mother

‘Mother-in-law’ they say, and yet
Somehow I simply can’t forget

‘Twas you who watched his baby ways
Who taught him his first hymn of praise,

Who smiled on him with loving pride
When he first toddled by your side.

‘Mother-in-law’ but oh, ‘twas you
Who taught him to be kind and true,

When he was tired, almost asleep,
‘Twas to your arm he used to creep;

And when he bruised his tiny knee,
‘Twas you who kissed it tenderly

‘Mother-in-law’ they say, and yet,
Somehow I never shall forget

How very much I owe
To you, who taught him how to grow.

You trained your son to look above,
You made of him the man I love;

And so I think of that today,
Ah! Then with thankful heart I’ll say

‘Our Mother’.
