I came across this wonderful poem about how often we take our mothers for granted. The author Del “Abe” Jones couldn’t have said it any better. If we’re the lucky ones whose mothers are still with us, let’s not pass up the chance to tell them every day that we love them.

IF SHE’S STILL WITH YOU

by Del “Abe” Jones

(In Memory of Margaret Rader Johnson)

Just a few days ago

A friend lost her Mother

And as we all know

There will never be another.

She’s one of the few things in life

That can never be replaced

She’s led us down those life’s paths

That can never be retraced.

Too many take their Moms for granted

And think they’ll always be around

They don’t know how She’ll be missed

When, one day She’s Heaven-bound.

Why we celebrate this special day

Only this one time a year?

When everyday our Mom is special

And we should tell Her, make that clear.

So, if you are a lucky one

Whose Mom is still with you

Tell her everyday you love her

For, that’s the least that you can do.
