Of Mommies and Mothers

"O be wise, what more can I say?" This simple phrase from the prophet Jacob tells us that in the end, it would be well with us to just be wise. How often have we heard these and other bits of wisdom from our parents, especially our Mothers? At times in our lives it may seem folly and inconvenient to trust in the guiding counsel of caring Mothers yet we never doubt their reasons. They love us with an unbounded love. They are there to reassure us when all is dark. They help see past our weaknesses and cherish in our triumphs. So here's to you Mom on this beautifully sunny Mother's Day; may you rejoice in that happiness which is reserved for those who give with all their heart. I love you.
