Lord, thank you for this very special friend, my Mother.

Lord, I have this very wonderful friend, and I would like to thank you with all my heart, for creating her and letting her enrich my life.

Thank you for all the years we've known each other and the confidences and hopes and troubles that we've shared.

Thank you for the understanding we bring each other. For the patience we have with each other's faults; for the advice and even the scolding's we are able to give each other without either of us taking offence.

Thank you for the help we have been to each other - in this way, and so many more.

Thank you that because of her I am a better, happier person, and that she has grown as a person too, because of me.

Thank you that she would give me anything in her power - time, money, work, possessions, encouragements, sympathy - whatever my need. And that she knows I would be as quick to respond to whatever her needs might be.

Thank you that we can laugh together, cry together, rejoice together. And although we may not see each other as often as we would like, when we do come together it is always the same.

Lord, Bless and keep her, this person you fashioned and filled with qualities that have meant so much to me. Lord thank you for the very special friend - My Mother
