Yes. I always enjoy it.
I have always tended to take the road less traveled. Sometimes I get lost; sometimes the road is under construction; and sometimes the road leads nowhere or everywhere. Regardless of my choices, I always learn, and never regret the journey.

Memories of Mom

Rate: 23 Flag

Moms are for everyone.

Everyone has a Mom;

Everyone loves Mom;

And everyone misses their Mom.


If you are on TV, you say, “Hi Mom!”

When you are hurt, Mom makes it better.

When you are happy, you want to share it with Mom.

When you are sad, you cry with Mom.


When you are wrong, Mom tells you that you are wrong.

When you are right, Mom tells you that you are the smartest and the best.

When you are unsure, you ask Mom;

When you are sure, you still want to “run it by Mom.”


If it were not for Moms, the world would be upside down.

There would be no Mother’s Day;

There would be no Mother-in-Laws;

And nobody could say, “I am going to tell Mom.”


When you are little, Mom is big;

When you are big, Mom is smarter.

When you are smarter, Mom is wiser;

When you are wiser, Mom smiles.


Let’s face it; Moms are here to stay.

You admire your Mom;

You miss your Mom;

You will always love your Mom.

A touching tribute to the larger-than-life presence of moms through all ages....R
Nice tribute Dave and glad to see you back.
rated with hugs
First Mother rises from lake of dreams
at dawn of time reaching arms to heaven
and teaches us how to sing thoughts in words
as we explore this world with our hands.
This makes me smile....
Perfect and true. Thank you.
so sweet, am missing my mom and her advice.
This is really lovely, Dave.
Cute and heartfelt. Good to see you Dave!
I miss my mom's advice at times. Even the times it made me scratch my head and think " She's got to be kidding."

Stop by my Mother's Day post if you get a moment.
This makes this mom smile. Thanks, Dave!

Glad you're back! Your poem is so true.
This should be on a Hallmark Card my man!
Mine's been gone for 12 years and I still miss her. Thanks for putting into words what I can only feel. R
