Happy Mother's Day!  To my wonderful, Mother and to all the other mother's out there. 
I wanted to upload this song here but couldn't figure out how to do it.  So here are the words. 
I love you Mom!!

Handful of Weeds

Four years old, with dirt on my face
I'd been out in the backyard
pickin dandelions all day
I burst through the front door
when I'd gathered enough
to give to my mom, to show her my love
when I held out my hands
she looked down at me, she said
I've never seen flowers
as beautiful as these

she's the one
who taught me about Jesus
she's the one
who taught me to sing
she deserves, an armful of roses
but she's satisfied with a handful of weeds

Now that I'm older and out on my own
I wish I could find more time
to make it back home
I couldve done better, I know in my heart
than to scribble a note
on a last minute card
And then she calls on the phone
and the first thing she says
is I've read this card over and over again

she's the one
who taught me about Jesus
she's the one
who taught me to sing
she deserves, an armful of roses
but she's satisfied with a handful of weeds

She's always known
what true love means
and I want her to know
what she means to me !

she's the one
who taught me about Jesus
she's the one
who taught me to sing
she deserves, an armful of roses
but she's satisfied with a handful of weeds

She's more than satisfied, with a handful of weeds.
