Our Thoughts... Our truest friend
Placeholder Image
"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

Today is Mothers Day. If by chance you forgot, there is still a chance for you to go get a card or just give her a big hug.

The most terrific battles of words and wills you may have had in your life probably came in dealing with your mother, especially when you were younger. In spite of that, your mom probably never gave up on you.

Special bonds between mother and child never go away; the one person in the whole world you can count on when everyone else has forsaken you is your mom.

Mothers usually don’t ask too much of us, only that we love them just a portion of the amount they love us.

We want to send out our love and our thanks to all of our mothers and grandmothers. God bless you today and every day.
