A mother's love

"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."

Today is Mother's Day. If you didn't know that, shame on you.

Of course, most of you don't need a proclamation to celebrate the special bond between mother and child nor the love a mother has for her child.

For the majority of us, when we were growing up nothing was more comforting after a trying experience than to have our mothers dry our tears and hug us close.

As we have grown older, the intense desire to have our mothers' approval and seek her advice remains in our hearts. Even after we lose our mothers, we like to think when we accomplish things that she would be proud if she were still here.

So today, we officially celebrate Mom and Grandma. We suppose that some of our readers have gone to great lengths in making or spent more than they should have purchasing Mom that perfect gift.

Most mothers would still be the happiest woman around if their children looked into their eyes and said, "Thank you for being my mom and I love you." Such magical words continue to cement the indescribable bond between children and their mothers.
