It is the hardest job in the world. It is the BEST job in the world. Soaring joy and sometimes crushing heartbreak, theirs or yours, and long after they are raised and gone you are still on your knees either pleading their case or giving thanks for small mercies.
Best wishes this weekend to all the moms, grand-moms, step-moms, new moms, hopeful moms, would-be moms and stand-in moms. There is always a child of some age in need of a mother’s love and God bless every woman who forgets herself for that moment and gives and gives and gives again. Happy Mother’s Day!
