Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Poem

This is my first Vintage Thingie Thursday post, hosted by Coloradolady. Click HERE to see all the great vintage goodies today.

This is really not a vintage piece I don't guess but it was written in 1979 by someone very dear to me and it is about Mother---I do not have any way of making a copy of the original print but it was a poem to me about mother and I treasure it and it still hangs on the wall right by my computer. The following was written by daughter--Coloradolady in 1979---enjoy---since Mother's Day is coming up.



A MOTHER

A mother is someone who loves us,
No matter what we say or do.

It does not matter how old we are,
Her love is always true.

She's someone we admire greatly.
She's someone we turn to confide in,

A mother is often our very best friend.
Her patience and courage, her dear smiling face,

Her warmth has made our home a much
happier place.

A mother always offers her smile.
She makes every childs life worth while.

A mother has a special place in everyones heart,
and that something special could never be torn apart.

A mother is someone to share all our dreams,
No matter how large or small they may seem.

She keeps our secrets beyond compare,
It seems , with her everything we share.

A mother lends her shouder to cry on
When our spirits are low, and we find

Ourselves turning to her day-by-day
For the comfort she provides in her old trusting way.

So thank you Lord, for giving me no other,
But the lady you gave me, my dear mother.



Thanks, Suzanne--I treasure this and after 30 years I hope
you still feel the same way. I love you dearly and without you
I would not be a mother. You are a great mother too.

my mother once told me a red rose means true love, a yellow rose is for someone you love like your mother and a white rose is for the loss of someone do not know where she got this but I remember this

How special this is. That poem describes my Mom perfectly. She has been gone for almost 10 years and I miss her terribly. How thankful I am for the blessed hope that we will be reunited one day.

I have nominated you for an award. You can come to my blog to "pick it up."

Blessings,
Charlotte

This is just beautiful; I am going to send it to my mother. According to etsy, vintage is anything 20 years or older, so this counts!
