Happy Mother’s Day to all of the women I know & love. Happy Mother’s Day to all the women in the world. The qualities that make a good mother are qualities that our country & world need more of.
Mothers care for others, frequently putting the needs of other first. Mothers are kind & gentle. Mothers offer to help even when it isn’t convenient. Mothers are diplomatic & know how to get people to come around. They are masters of gentle persuasion. Mothers feed everyone, realizing people behave better with a full belly. Moms know a sense of humor is crucial to keeping the peace.
Our sweet Momma was surely all of that. She is 92 now & being cared for by the lovely women at Davis. Still a blessing to us.
So, regardless of how many children you have, I thank you for adding your grace & wisdom & laughter to my life. I am grateful for each of you.
Mother’s Day is always special because Edward & I fell in love that weekend in 1976. Forty years! He has certainly done his share of “mothering” to me. Don’t know where I’d be without him.
