"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us;
when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us;
when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us,
and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
and cause peace to return to our hearts."
Being a mother cannot even begin to be described in the dictionary.
No definition takes into account all that mothering requires.
Motherhood is not neat; it is messy. It isn’t easy.
It is the hardest job in the world. A child is loved, nurtured, cried over,
helped, healed, and given your heart.
It is emotionally and physically draining.
It is heartache when they hurt, heart-happy when they are well,
and heart pride at their accomplishments.
All that you are you owe it to your mother. You attribute all your
success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education
you received from your mother. One day of the year is not enough
to honor you. The gift you give is, as the commercial says, priceless!
So to all you mothers or future mothers let me say ... "Happy Mother's Day "
