What Can You Give to a Mother?


Wondering what you could say or give to a mother to express your thanks and your love to her–on Mother’s Day or any day? For those of you whose moms are still living, here’s one simple suggestion.

What Can You Give to a Mother?


Rebecca Barlow Jordan

What can you give to a mother

whose love outweighs what you could do?

What can you say to a mother

whose life has been devoted to you?

How can you say thanks for prayers

that have made you what you are?

How can you tell a mother

what’s really in your heart?

You start by saying, “Thank you,”

“I love you,” and then,

You listen to her timely words

and hide them deep within.

You give her back the honor

that she deserves, too;

and then you bless the Lord for her—

Thank Him for blessing you!

    In reference to your ‘What Can You Give to a Mother’ post, God honestly blessed me when He gave me my mother. She is such a caring and giving person. She is my friend and confidant – a truly great woman.
