A mother’s love; An unselfish love

A mother is compassionate when we are anxious, and patient when we are errant.  They forgive us for our carelessness, and carefully lets us develop to our potential.  In celebration of Mother’s Day, let our appreciation for them be unrelenting, just as a mother’s love is unending.  We wish all mothers everywhere a meaningful and joyful Mother’s Day.  May they be blessed with good health, comfort, happiness, and peace.  May they be blessed with love.
