You Know You're a Mom When...
1. You count the sprinkles on each child's cupcake to make sure they're equal.
2. You can't bear to give away your children's baby clothes. It's so final.
3. You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when you say, "Not in your good clothes!"
4. You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.
5. You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.
6. You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job!" You know you wouldn't trade it for anything.
7. You cry when you take them to the first day of kindergarten and when they graduate from high school.

A Mother's Day Poem
by Sue Galloway's children
When God made mothers
He made them fine,
As fine as can be.
And then He made
The finest one
And sent her down
When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold, your son!"
Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her into his own household.
"Her Children Rise Up And Call Her Blessed"
She looks for wool and flax,
And works with her hands in delight.
She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
She rises also while it is still night
,And gives food to her household,
And portions to her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength,
And makes her arms strong.
She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
She extends her hand to the poor;
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates.
When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children will rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying,
"Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all."
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
She shall be praised.
