God's Great Masterpiece

When God created mothers
He made them stronger than all others
(including fathers, uncles, nephews and brothers).

He gave all mothers nerves of steel
To cope with young kids who squeal
And older ones who argue a great deal.

He gave each mother a heart of gold
Containing great love untold,
Never to be bought or sold.

And He also made sure
That a mother's touch could cure
All cuts and abrasions, whether large or obscure.

And then, as if to disarm
Our fear and alarm,
God gave all mothers a homely, earthly charm.

We take mothers for granted, when really we shouldn't;
And to manage without them we know we just couldn't.
I hate to admit all this, but then, what man wouldn't?
