Once upon a time, there was a mom …


My mom and I

Once upon a time, there was a mom; my mom.  She was beautiful, smart and very hard working.  Under her control and care, one dollar became ten, then twenty, then fifty.  She sewed our clothes, our cushion covers, our curtains.  She cooked meals for her household and for those who had less than we did.  She loved her God and served him diligently in His house.  She willingly shared whatever she had because she knew this act would come back to her in blessings tenfold (if not more). She was a kind soul who left us way too soon.  

But now I am a mother too and my job is to pass on everything she taught me to my own child, so that he in turn can pass the baton on to his children.  It’s great to be a mother when you’ve had such a fine example; thanks mummy – you rock!

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” George Washington

“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” Jessica Lange
