Praise God for Mothers
With abiding faith and prayer.
Bless their selfless love,
Their sacrifice and tender care.
Bless those who guide and give;
We see their good works everywhere.
          2006 Lois E. Wilson

She watched her daughter still so small
Play and talk to her baby doll.
And said, “You are a M-I-T.”
Years passed; the daughter baby-sat
And did a good job doing that.
She told her, “I see M-I-T.”
Life following its natural plan,
The daughter wed a special man.
Mom reminded, “M-I-T.”
Then a grandchild, handsome and sweet,
Thrilled she claimed, “The circle’s complete!”
“Mom, I thought you were disappointed in me.
I didn’t get my degree from M. I. T.”
She hugged her, “Daughter, I have some explaining.
My M-I-T stood for Mother-In-Training!”
          2013 Lois E. Wilson
