Happy mothers' day to you or yours

This ezine is lovingly delivered to you by Wellesley Gayle (that's me - below!) and

This is not a typical Jamaica Ezine please bear with me, I just wanted to pause and recognize all the mothers, caregivers, big sisters, grandmoms,adopted moms,guardians and even the dads who had to be mothers. God bless them!

As you probably know, I lost my mom last year & my special grand mom a few years before (My Dad between them too), so this one is a little emotional for me now.

Here's a lovely poem I'd like to share with you and I hope you will take it personally or share with your mom too.

Here it goes...
When God set the world in place, when He hung the stars up in space, when He made the land and the sea, then He made you and me.

He sat back and saw all that was good, He saw things to be as they should. Just one more blessing He had in store; He created a mother, but whatever for?

He knew a mother would have a special place to shine His reflection on her child's face. A mother will walk the extra mile just to see her children smile.

She'll work her fingers to the bone to make a house into a home. A mother is there to teach and guide, a mother will stay right by your side.

She'll be there through your pain and strife, she'll stay constant in your life. A mother will lend a helping hand until you have the strength to stand.

She'll pick you up when you are down, when you need a friend she'll stick around. A mother is one who listens well, will keep her word; will never tell.

A mother never pokes or pries but stands quietly by your side, giving you the strength you need, encouraging you to succeed.

A mother is one who can be strong when you need someone to lean on. You're more than a mother to me; a reflection of Him in your face I see, a love that knows no boundaries.

I'm glad that you chose to be all this and more to me. You share a love that knows no end, you're more than my mother, you are my friend.

I've already posted the poem on the site. Please join the rest of the MIJ family and share your 2012 mother's day wishes here.

God Bless Mothers. Happy mother's day all!
