that night when she so softly held my hands and sought to stop
my tears; but, precisely, it seemed to me that this should not have

sweetness that my childhood had never known; it seemed to me
that, with a hidden and impious hand, I had just traced the first
wrinkle and made appear the first grey hair in her soul
. ~ Marcel Proust

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 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

When I was growing up
we never had the best house
on the block, the best car,
or the most money,
but one thing I had that no one
else had was
the best mother
Looking back, I guess I was
the richest kid
in my neighborhood after all.
