Hats Off to Mother

Here is a cute poem for Mother's Day next Sunday. I use it for FHE with pictures of all the appropriate hats. I wish I knew who to give credit to, but there is no author listed on the copy I have.

Hats Off to Mother

"My mother's job is sometimes hard, and I have heard her say,
'The hours are long, and if I could, I'd like to change the pay.'
Her profession has variety, and I will tell you now
About the many hats she wears--and why and when and how.

"1. My mommy's a nurse who fixes and patches
All of my hurts and my sores and my scratches.

"2. My mother's a chef who fixes each dinner
Fit for a king--a blue-ribbon winner!

"3. My mom's a chauffeur who drives pretty slow
But gets me to places where I need to go.

"4. My mom's a detective, and no one is greater
At getting the truth from me sooner or later.

"5. My mommy's a gardener and works really hard,
Planting and weeding and grooming our yard.

"6. My mother's a maid--at least that's what she said--
'Cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.

"7. My mother's an angel--a queen in disguise--
Who teaches the gospel with tears in her eyes.

"Today take these hats off, and please wear no other
Let me do your work, to show I LOVE YOU MOTHER!"

Scripture of the Day: H-28, Ephesians 2:8
