Wonderful Mother by Pat O’Reilly “God made a wonderful mother, A mother who never grows old; He made her smile of the sunshine, And He molded her heart of pure gold; In her eyes He placed bright shining stars, In her cheeks fair roses you see; God made a wonderful mother, And He gave that dear mother to me.” And Grandma’s too.. Author unknown “While we honor all our mothers with words of love and praise. While we tell about their goodness and their kind and loving ways. We should also think of Grandma, she’s a mother too, you see… For she mothered my dear mother as my mother mothers me.”
