She’s Overlooked

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

 

as strong as her women

 

She’s overlooked and underestimated

But she’s solid as a rock and she’s only begun

She’s overlooked and underestimated

A loving woman that knows there’s more to be done

Those of this world may not think her so tall

But those of the spirit know that she’s not small

She’s stomped her feet, and stood her ground

And gave the devil his due

And more than not unselfishly

In support of me and you

She’s opened up her home to friends and kin

Leading by an example the righteous way to win

She reads the world, dissects it all

Then grabs hold of the truth

Sincere in heart, sincere in mind

Always willing to show the proof

She’s trustworthy, secrets are safe with her

She never puts on airs; you’ll always feel secure

She often smiles and rarely frowns

Tries to love one and all

Always taking seriously

The role of her chosen call

She doesn’t like to dwell upon the past

Knowing the future is the only thing that really lasts

What’s done is done; won’t be again

The future is the key

But only if your future holds

Mother’s love unconditionally

She’s overlooked and underestimated

But she’s solid as a rock and she’s only begun

She’s overlooked and underestimated

A loving woman that knows there’s more to be done

    Love it, JW…my mama was Wonder Woman through and through. A great tribute to all the women trying to be the best mother they know how to be.

        Well, thank you, my friend. You know I have equal respect for your talents. But even more so for your personality, and I cherish your friendship, Cathy.

        You can have the position for life… ha ha. Too much responsibility.

        Well, I haven’t seen a woman yet that couldn’t get what she wanted from a man if she put her mind to it. Especially when she is as smart and talented as you are, Pretty Lady.
