"On this day oh beautiful Mother..." is a hymn from church, from my childhood, that we we would sing at the end of Mass to the Blessed Mother. It is one of my mother's favorite hymns.
And so I found it fitting to use it today, everyday really.
"On this day, O beautiful Mother,
On this day we give thee our love.
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover,
Trusting thy gentle care to prove.
On this day we ask to share,
Dearest Mother, thy sweet care;
Aid us ere our feet astray
Wander from thy guiding way.
Queen of angels, deign to hear
Lisping children's humble prayer;
Young hearts gain, O virgin pure,
Sweetly to thyself allure."
May the rewards of Motherhood be full, ripe, and yours today Mom.
Love you so much and I wish I could be by your side.
