One Cowgirl's Loving Poem Dedicated to Her Hardworking Mother

Aired on 08/02/1995 | CC tv-pg
One day, a cowgirl named Tommi Jo was in the supermarket with her mother, and they noticed a woman in line in front of them who was "really well put-together and just immaculate," which caused Tommi Jo's mom to hide her hands in her pockets out of shame.

This inspired Tommi Jo to write (along with her mom) a poem titled "Mama's Hands," a touching ode to a woman whose love can be measured by the calluses and blisters earned in the service of others.
