Moms Life Lessons – Remembrances from growing up years

I learned to serve by watching mom, she’d smooth the clothes out with her palm

Spray the midst to wet them down, iron them flat, no wrinkles now

Each seam deserved her special care, through tireless work she had no airs

While I sat there upon the couch, she’d iron, and sometimes she’d say, ouch

The steam was hot and did its part, when it’s unplugged, the iron went dark

Though we’d survive with wrinkles, yes, she wanted us to look our best

Serving us was just her joy, it was good to be her boy

Exasperated all the while, she walked with me another mile

I never asked her why she worked, night and day, and never shirked–

But love always does those things, which show love, no glory brings

Selfless deeds done all for love, will be rewarded up above
