Mom Was Always There

How can I say it any better; how can I explain a mom who loved her children unconditionally—still does. She’s the greatest, and yes, even when I wasn’t what she’d hoped I would be, she was still there. I thank God for her and her love… not just on this day we honor our mothers… but every day I live.

Thanks, Mom, for always being there.

I love you!

 Mom Was Always There

 –

As far back as I can remember

There’s been a lady with auburn hair

That I can count on when I need her

My Mom is always there

 –

I used to bring friends home for lunch

I’d bring lots of them, she didn’t care

She’d fix lunch for the whole darn bunch

My Mom was always there

 –

She took us to church and Sunday school

She taught us to help and to share

She made sure we knew about God’s love

My Mom was always there

 –

She came to all my baseball games

I’d get embarrassed, but I didn’t care

I can still hear her screaming my name

My Mom was always there

As I got older and I’d hit bad times

And it seemed life was too much to bear

I’d call and she’d make me feel better

My Mom was always there

 –

No, there’s no one quite like my Mother

So very few that can compare

A smile and a laugh that bring sunshine

My Mom is always there

 –

And when I lay down each night

There’s always one thing in my prayers

I ask God to watch and protect her

So my Mom will always be there
