What is a Mother?
A Mother, human though she is, is that wonderful creature whose love knows no bounds. She is, perhaps, the rarest of all God's creatures, because she is the truest.
From the first day she becomes a Mother, hers is a strange destiny. She has no eight-hour day, no five-day week, no employee benefits, no paid vacations. Hers is seven-days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day full of chores and crisis. She is a spe#####t and jack-of-all-trades - a babysitter, a laundress, a nurse, a cook, a housekeeper, a maid, a chauffeur, a counselor, and countless other things.
A Mother copes with all kinds of situations: the first day of school, the first date, and the first broken hearts; the nights of worry over late dates, auto accidents, and teen-age escapades.
But after all is said and done, a Mother is a lonely woman when her children are grown up and gone ... when her life is changed and somehow sad, though finally free. She is then a woman wondering about adult children ... where they are, what they are doing ... and telling herself they still love her and need her as they used to, while missing the days when the patter of little feet echoed through the house.
What is a Mother? She is the one person you always expect to be there when you need her, though you know one day she won't be. She is that wonderful memory of childhood, that tender guide of youth ... that one unforgettable person who made a house a home.
