Mothers can not do it all
But surely they do try.
Mothers hear the angels call
To comfort all who cry.
Mothers for themselves may fall
For others they will fly.
Mothers bear the weight of all
For their children they would die.
A mother's gift extends beyond
All bounds of time and space.
Her lovingness and nurturing
Make Earth a peaceful place.
-Kristin F. McKendall
Grandmothers Are Grand
Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,
restoring the sense that our most precious things
are those that do not change much over time.
No love of childhood is more sublime,
demanding little, giving on demand,
more inclined than most to grant the wings,
on which we fly off to enchanted lands.
Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers,
helping out with young and restless hearts,
each has all the patience wisdom brings,
remembering our passions more than others,
soothing us with old and well-honed arts.

Now, she has a baby of her own!
