They were immigrants, and pioneers, and workers, and trail blazers. They raised families in whatever circumstances they were given. They gave everything they could, asked for very little, and prayed that their children grow strong and happy.
On this Mother's Day I smile over the handmade cards and slightly crooked potted plants. I tear up when tackled with hugs, kisses, and compliments. And I give up a silent prayer of thanks, to those who made this possible.
