A Mother’s Love: SHF Mother’s Day Celebration 2016 (Photos)


On Thursday May 5, 2016, St. Hope Foundation held a special event to salute mother’s and mother’s to be. It was a beautiful event with many touching moments. Mia Gradney, from Houston KHOU Channel 11 television, provided an emotional keynote address.

Today we would like to salute all mother’s on this Mother’s Day with a poem by Helen Steiner Rice.


A Mother’s love is something that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems . . .

It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hand.

Happy Mother’s Day!
