I wonder how she does it, holding it together the way she does.
It seems no matter how life gets out of place she puts it back the way it was.
It's always been a mystery, but I guess it must be true.
That there is nothing stronger than a mother's love when she uses MOTHER'S GLUE.
Now MOTHER'S GLUE is not a recipe, or that sticky stuff used in art.
But it's that special love that mother's use to keep your life from falling apart.
It's the way she is always there to listen so you know that everything will be okay.
It's that special bonding hug she gives you to help you make it through the day.
It's the way she is able to touch your face and hold the tears away.
It's the way she stays up all night with you to hold the fears away.
It's the way she makes the sacrifice because she'll do anything for you.
Because she knows you just wouldn't make it if she didn't use MOTHER'S GLUE.
But, if you're still not sure then ask her, and I'll bet she'll just smile at you.
Because a mother never uses words, she just uses MOTHER'S GLUE.
