Memories of my mom

Memories are awsome aren't they? A couple of years ago my sister and I were reminiscing about my mother who passed away in 1994. One of my moms favorite sayings was "That's it,thats all!!" We recalled what she used to say to each one of the kids. I sat down and wrote a poem. When I need a smile,I read that poem.
I thought that I would share. Forgive all mistakes because I am not a writer. I am in my "mama mood " today

Thatís It, Thatís All !!!
Vicky Daviss Mitchell

Get in the house, Shut the door
Stay in the yard,You want some more
Put that guitar down its half past one
Finish your homework cause youíre not done
I love you

Pick up your clothes. Hang them up
Wash your hands, its time to sup
Say your verse, slow down when you eat
Empty the trash, wipe your feet
I love you

Do you think money grows on trees
Put that money in church, donít forget to say please
You want to run away, I will help you pack
donít forget to put the brown coat in your sack
I love you

What goes on in this house stays in here
Let me make myself perfectly clear
Always carry an extra dime
You better be home from school on time
I Love you

Just so you know you should be proud
God had a way of picking you out in a crown
Never be ashamed of the color of your skin
it all begins and ends from within
I Love you

You know this hurts me more than you
Stand up straight, hold your head up high
Love will come again now donít you cry
Get your butt up and donít be slow
Off to the hospital you must go
I have another grandbaby on its way
You can see that your water broke
now donít delay
Grandchildren are precious as can be
for I am the root that's the Taylor in me
I love you

From her hospital bed we heard her say
"I'am so glad you came to see about me
Canít you just stay until three"
I just want all you kids to get along
as brothers and sisters that how you belong
Especially since my time is near
for the man upstairs to take me away from here
I am the Kings kid now donít forget
God is Love, He hasnít failed me yet
I love you

Thatís It, Thatís All
