( What a mother would say )
I GAVE YOU LIFE BUT CANNOT LIVE IT FOR YOU

I CAN GIVE YOU DIRECTIONS BUT I CANNOT BE THERE TO LEAD YOU
I CAN ALLOW YOU FREEDOM BUT I CANNOT ACCOUNT FOR IT
I CAN TAKE YOU TO TEMPLE BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU BELIEVE
I CAN TEACH YOU RIGHT FROM WRONG BUT I CANNOT ALWAYS DECIDE FOR YOU
I CAN BUY YOU BEAUTIFUL CLOTHS BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU BEAUTIFUL INSIDE
I CAN OFFER YOU ADVICE BUT I CANNOT ACCEPT IT FOR YOU
I CAN GIVE YOU LOVE BUT I CANNOT FORCE IT UPON YOU
I CAN TEACH YOU TO SHARE BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU UNSELFISH
I CAN TEACH YOU RESPECT BUT I CANNOT FORCE YOU TO SHOW HONOR
I CAN ADVICE YOU ABOUT FRIENDS BUT CANNOT CHOOSE THEM FOR YOU
I CAN ADVISE YOU ABOUT SEX BUT I CANNOT KEEP YOU PURE
I CAN TELL YOU THE FACTS OF LIFE BUT I CANNOT BUILD YOUR REPUTATION
I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT DRINKS BUT I CAN’T SAY “NO” FOR YOU
I CAN WARN YOU ABOUT DRUGS BUT I CAN’T PREVENT YOU FROM USING THEM
I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT LOFTY GOALS BUT I CAN’T ACHIEVE THEM FOR YOU.
I CAN TEACH YOU KINDNESS BUT I CAN’T FORCE YOU TO BE GRACIOUS.
I CAN WARN YOU ABOUT SINS BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU MORAL.
I CAN LOVE YOU AS A CHILD BUT I CANNOT PLACE YOU IN GOD’S FAMILY.
I CAN PRAY FOR YOU BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU WALK WITH GOD.
I CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT GOD BUT I CANNOT MAKE GOD YOUR LORD.
I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE BUT I CANNOT GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE.
I CAN LOVE YOU WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ALL OF MY LIFE AND I WILL ALWAYS..
Our mother is truly a Gift of God
