To Mother, With Love

Of all the names held sacred in our hearts, none equal the sweet and sublime name of Mother. How precious are the recollections of a mother’s patient training. How many have nobly ascribed all recognized success to the devotion and guidance of mother. Through helpless infancy, adolescence and at times, adulthood, her heart was and is our support and protection.

She provided guidance in developing the coping skills needed to deal with life’s trials and tribulations. Largely, we are mother-made, because she instilled a way of life in our hearts. As we reflect on our lives, we are apt to find that we mirror our mother.

Little did I realize just how import the following words would be when my mother said them many years ago, “You are going to make mistakes in life. It’s what you do after a mistake that counts.” I sincerely appreciate the gifts she gave me that money couldn’t buy -- resilience, tenacity, courage, strength, respect for self and others, integrity and humility.

With love and appreciation to my mother, JoAnn, I honor you on Mother’s Day and always.
