Happy Mother’s Day

Poetry Corner

Today is Mother’s Day and I have the honor and privilege of walking in Commencement at Hampton University and receiving my Master of Business Administration degree.  God is so phenomenal that He equipped me with everything I needed to excel in grad school.  I will be graduating Magna Cum Laude.  God is a WONDER!!!  I am so excited about what God is doing in my life.  This has been a long journey and this is a special Mother’s Day present to myself from the Lord.  I could not have done any of it without Him.  I’m a living witness that you can be a wife, mother, author, poet, ministry leader, daughter, sister, friend, runner, and so much more and still obtain your degree.  With God, you are pretty much a big deal.  Keep Him first and watch Him blow your mind.  Lord, I thank you for my life!

 I want to wish every mother or mother figure a Happy Mother’s Day and dedicate this poem to all of you! 

You are amazing

By: Nicole L. Ellis

Dear mother,

You carried a human being inside of your womb

By nurturing and caring

In nine months your love came full bloom

Your life was no longer your own

And that was okay

Seeing your precious child took your breath away

You are amazing

Constantly pouring your heart into others

Although you wore many hats you were best known as a mother

If placed on a big screen the entire world would see

How much love you offered to everyone and the cost was absolutely free

You are amazing

Although sometimes you can be happy or sad, frustrated or mad

You go through life as if nothing is really that bad

The weight of the world is carried on your shoulders

You grow with grace and make others look forward to growing older

You’re the backbone to the household and enjoy helping those in need

Generosity is your middle name and you don’t believe in greed

You are amazing

God knew what He was doing when He had you in mind

The woman you would become would stand the test of time

Your investment into the lives of your children would last forever

Being a mother is a great endeavor

If no one has ever told you this before

You are amazing

Absolutely Amazing!

Happy Mother’s Day!

God bless you all on this Mother’s Day!
