JJ Heller: A mother like you

I love this song about mothering by singer songwriters JJ Heller, her husband and Brandon Heath.

The words are:

You gave me a drawer in your kitchen
You gave me the room with a view of the yard
Whatever the hurt, you knew right where to kiss it
You gave me the best of your heart

And you carried my rocks in your pocket
Flowers and feathers and butterfly wings
You had an answer for all of my questions
You showed me wonderful things

I know that it hasn’t been easy
I hope that I love like you do
‘Cause I know that this world would be better
If everyone had a mother like you
