    This is a real longshot but I am hoping maybe one of you will know the title of a poem I read years ago.
    The poem was written by a woman in tribute to her mother when her mother died.

    It talks about how our mothers are born, and as little girs, they grow and learn, all to prepare for creating a home that will welcome us (children). Then as their life here comes to an end, they will go to heaven, where they will learn and grow, to prepare a home for us there.

    I am hardly doing it justice. It really is a beautiful poem.
    Is this familiar to anyone?? My Mom is very ill and will be leaving us soon, so I am really hoping to find this poem. Thank you all.♥

    A Mother's Crown

    Heaven lit up with a mighty presence,
    as the Angels all looked down.
    Today the Lord was placing the jewels
    Into my mother's crown.
    He held up a golden crown,
    as my darling mother looked on.
    He said in His gentle voice,
    ‘I will now explain each one.’
    ‘The first gem,’ He said, ‘is a Ruby,
    and it's for endurance alone,
    for all the nights you waited up
    for your children to come home.’
    'For all the nights by their bedside,
    you stayed till the fever went down.
    For nursing every little wound,
    I add this ruby to your crown.’
    ‘An emerald, I'll place by the ruby,
    for leading your child in the right way.
    For teaching them the lessons,
    That made them who they are today.’
    'For always being right there,
    through all life's important events.
    I give you a sapphire stone,
    for the time and love you spent.’
    ‘For untying the strings that held them,
    when they grew up and left home.
    I give you this one for courage.’
    Then the Lord added a garnet stone.
    ‘I'll place a stone of amethyst,’ He said.
    ‘For all the times you spent on your knees,
    when you asked if I'd take care of your children,
    and then for having faith in Me.’
    ‘I have a pearl for every little sacrifice
    that you made without them knowing.
    For all the times you went without,
    to keep them happy, healthy and growing.’
    'And last of all I have a diamond,
    the greatest one of all,
    for sharing unconditional love
    whether they were big or small.’
    ‘It was you love that helped them grow
    Feeling safe and happy and proud
    A love so strong and pure
    It could shift the darkest cloud.’
    After the Lord placed the last jewel in,
    He said, ‘Your crown is now complete,
    You’ve earned your place in Heaven
    With your children at your feet.’
