Mothers Are Special People
Mothers are special people In a million different ways,
And merit loving compliments And many words of praise,
For a mother’s aspiration Is for her family’s success,
To make the family proud of her And bring them happiness . . .
And like our heavenly Father,
She’s a patient, loving guide,
Someone we can count on To be always on our side.
