I hope everyone is paying tribute to the amazing mother's in their life today. I am very fortunate to have an amazing mother who has poured her heart and soul into my sister and I, our spouses, and our kids. Mothers are the bedrock of a family and work tirelessly to help enrich the lives of those around them. Their work literally never ends whether it's working, being a mom, being a spouse, planning, preparing, and all of the endless things that pop up on their to-do list with all of the responsibilities they have. Even today as my wife is enjoying a lot of quiet time to relax, she is working on a video for my son's flag football season! So to all of the mothers I hope we can carry over a piece of today into the rest of the year by appreciating the women in our lives that mean so much to us.
A Mother’s Love by Helen Steiner Rice
A Mother’s love is something that no on can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . . It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking . . . It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems . . . It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation . . . A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hands
