God bless all mothers! Today, I honor you all. You have one of the most important “jobs” on the planet, and yours is often a thankless one. Today, I pray you receive the appreciation you so richly deserve. I also pray you are granted a glimpse of the importance of what you do every day. It matters. You matter. Happy Mother’s Day!

“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 who rejoice with us in our sunshine 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
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” ~Agatha Christie
