Mother's wow! The wow of it
We take them oh so for granted
They multitask like little ants
As if they've even planned it
They have a daily itinerary 
Laundry...cleaning.  dishes
Catering to the many requests
To honor hubby's and children's wishes

We leave our homes behind
As off we go to work
Expecting their due diligence 
To not one task to shirk
What a glad expectancy
When back from work we come
Everything as orderly as
When our day had first begun

All of our emotional baggage
They take that task on too
Trying to comfort us in our distress
This is just what good moms do
Depending on the size of family
Is the time slot designation
To deal in a most affectionate way
With every situation

They automatically become psychologist's
Except without the degree
And have to treat themselves as patients
Such are mother's duty
God sure made a special breed
He made them far above others 
He knew the helpmate men would need
So of course He gave us mother's!

Mother's I don't envy you
You are a rare breed for sure
You have eyes for everything going on around you
Yet keep emotionally secure
God's called you to the highest task
That He's given to anyone else on earth
To watch over your family twenty four seven
Begining the day of their birth...

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
