My family brings me joy every single day

Everyday when I wake up
And open up my eyes
No matter what the weather brings
My world has sunny skies
Even during hard times
My family is there
The one thing I can count on
Is the love that we all share
My children bring me happiness
My husband gives me love
The joy they bring me every day
Is a true gift from above
There are many things upon this earth
That I certainly enjoy
But without my precious family
They just couldn't bring me joy
Every single thing I do
Is no longer just for me
So with all my heart the things I do
Are for my family

Mommy is

Mommy is a helper
Mommy is a friend
Mommy is a worker
Whose shift will never end
Mommy is a teacher
Mommy is a nurse
Mommy is always prepared
With the whole world in her purse
Mommy is a fixer
Mommy is a pro
Mommy has two sets of eyes
So Mommy always knows
Mommy is a nurturer
Mommy is the boss
Mommy never ever yells
(Except when she is cross)
Mommy is a student
Mommy never rests
Mommy has the hardest job
Mommy is the best
