Pride and Roots

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us;
when adversity takes the place of prosperity;
 
 
when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us;
 when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving
 

Today, I thank God for giving me the mother He did.
She is more than a blessing in my life.
She is the root of who I am and I could not be more proud of that.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
