What is a Mother?

Mom and I, Feb 1998

Today I pay tribute to my Mom - whom I owe everything to and who who is always around to dry the tears and make everything okay.  She is there to make sense of things when they seem crazy and unmanageable.  She is  disposed to help when things turn rough and matters require a mother's perspective.  She is ready to sacrifice her own wants and needs in favour of her children.  Even when everything seems grim, she is quick to point out the good in the situation.  She is not, by any means, perfect; but she is certainly the perfect Mom for me.  I thank God every single day for her.

The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.  (Proverbs 29:15)
