Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Mothers

30 Jan

“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.”
― Washington Irving
My mother is my truest friend. She gave me life, and I know she would give her life for me. I’d like to think that I am a good, kind, loyal and loving person, but these qualities were learned at my mother’s knee. Children learn from example, and I had the best role model in the world.

Tonight, I called Mom to ask her what her motherly words of wisdom or advice would be. She thought about it for a long time, but couldn’t think of anything to say. Then, I realized that she really didn’t have to say the words, she just lived the words.

I was thrilled that I got to spend three weeks with Mom. I miss her already, and she misses me like crazy. I hope that my two sons feel that that I was a good role model, and I am their truest friend. I gave them life and I would give my life for them.

      Yes, when we were young, we took our mothers for granted. As we get older, we realize how much they sacrificed and gave without thinking. Lincoln said, ” All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” So true. I’m sure you have wonderful memories of your mom, as do I.
