There is a special place in Heaven for mothers.

Randy De La O

They give so much and ask for so little in return. When all the world is against you, Mom is still there, with open arms. She'll love you when no one else will, even during those times when we acted less than honorable and probably didn't deserve it. She'll give you the food off her plate to satisfy your hunger. When you really, really screw up, she'll threaten to tell the old man, but at the last minute she'll give you a break and keep it to herself. She'll scrimp and save to make sure you have something nice to wear for your birthday. She'll make sure you wear your rain coat on a rainy day, even if you dump it by the side of the house when you walk out the door. She'll cook you your favorite meal in a way that no one else will ever be able to. When she has to she'll stand up for you in a way that will shock you, like a lioness protecting her cubs, consequences be damned, and when they have to, when you really need it, they'll knock you upside the head, we deserved it no doubt. There is no one like mom. God Bless them all!!
