This is an accurate poem explaining my mother's acceptance of her Arthritis.



Many years ago when I was just a kid


My mother contracted an illness that is horrid


One day it seems like


she was fine and the next an invalid


Crippled and arthritic never complaining while


In constant pain


From Rheumatoid Arthritis twisting and stiffening in


New locked positioning and the


She maintained high spirited and always laughing


And all she ever takes is aspirin.



The great mother in the world is one who


Fights to stand and gets to her feet and though


Disease has claimed itís victory


Sheís never been defeated


She stands on weakened legs by the power


Of her spirit


Sheíd cook my meals and made sure Iíd eat it


She paid the bills and managed all the families


Affairs and even though we all worked and all cared


She hasnít ever given up or into despair



Later there came many more severe physical threats


Operations as worse as it gets


And we all gathered and prayed


Night and day


And I followed her power of example to stay


And the Lord answered us and


She made it through


And with my sister persistently assisting all her needs



Pops became ill and lost his mind from old


Age and shortly after died


Then not too far down my sisterís body


Was laid down


And now my mother and I only by every grace of God


Survive and manage carefully our lives


My brother used to help but he now has a brand new bride


And a baby is on the way


So I just want very much to say


Thank You Almighty Christ


For come what may


If one holds on and believes


Faith will Save the Day!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful POEM. I love your writings, I feel them in the center of my being. I can relate to pain, I have spinal stenosis, osteo-arthritis, but, you are right our faith can play a real part in our lives. Thank you LORD.

Rich, thank you for sharing this with us. I like you Mother suffer from Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis. It really sucks sometimes but I refuse to let it take me down! Gonna fight with all i've got! Unlike your Mom though a asprin just won't do it for me! It hurts so bad sometimes it is really difficult to sit much less type or write something new. But you did a wonderful job here!
