Mom’s life lessons on family

There in the basement, her iron in her hand, my mother was teaching on life to this man
Contentment is peaceful, no strife in your way, you simply relax and enjoy your day
Your marriage is teamwork, you trust in your spouse, and while they’re away, you’re at work keeping house
You’re in need of nothing, your wants are supplied, you trust in the Lord for all things beside
Life’s little pleasures are all around you, if you strive too much, you’ll miss out on them too
Simple is better, slower is best, contentment is cultivated while you’re at rest
Time that you spend with your family is rich, don’t miss it for nothing, don’t take the bait switch
The job and home life are balanced, you see, for raising up children the way they should be
His contribution is to work at his job, dads will provide through their labor of love
Habits of goodness, our citizenship, we knew better than to give any lip
The mother’s love labor is here in her nest, where she teaches us the things that are blest
Molding our character, making us good, even if we unwillingly would
Now fully trained, thus all became we, what was often referred to as a family
