A Mother's Prayer for Daughter in Law

A Mother's Prayer
I prayed for you
Before I ever met you
And once I saw you
I knew I would never forget you.
There was something about you
That was special and rare
But I didn't know yet
That you were the answer to my prayer.
You were the answer to the prayer
For the one my son would wed
I prayed for you from the time he was born
And this is where my prayers led.
I prayed for your health
Health of body, soul and spirit
And I knew always in my heart
That God, our Father, would hear it.
And now I know just who you are
And how you found your way
Into our hearts and homes and lives
And to your wedding day.
I have put together this little book
To show you how much we care
How proud we are to celebrate together
The answer to a mother's prayer.

Thank you for the beautiful poem! I tried to tell my daughter-in-law on the phone how she amazes me and how much she means to me, but I couldn't find the words. This poem said what I felt and more. Thank you again! God bless you!

Hi Thena

Thank you so very much for the lovely poem about a daughter in law.

Please could you give me advise about the "book" that you talk about in the poem, and if you could write something other than a book that's given something else, 'cos i do not know what kind of book i would give her...

Thank you kindly

I so appreciate it!

Thank you! I hope you don't mind if I use this at my daughter's wedding to focus on my future son in law whom I adore. I will barely alter, and thanks again for sharing these beautiful words. You're going to make me look great! I will not plagiarize - I will give thanks to you
