Happy Mother's Day!

The most influential position in the nation today is held by a woman! She enforces law, practices medicine, and teaches...without any degree, certificate of confidence or required training. She handles the nation’s food, administers its drugs, and practices emergency first aid. This for all the spiritual, physical, and mental ills of the American family. A man literally places his life and the lives of his children into the hands of this woman - his wife and children’s mother. (Quote by Ruth Hampton)

Many of the most beautiful things in life come by two’s and three’s, by dozens and by hundreds: Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins - but only ONE mother in the whole world! (Kate Douglas Wriggins)

We may have a problem with absentee fathers in this generation—but rarely do you ever see a mother abandon or leave her children to fend for themselves. Why? Because only to her was given God’s creative power in her body to bare children. She fights hard to bring them into the world and she will fight hard to keep and protect them. Her pain has produced a deep love for them. Thanks Mom!!
