Somebody said being a mother is boring. That somebody never rode in the car with a teenager learning to drive (excitement I have to look forward to).
Somebody said a "good" mother never raises her voice. That somebody has never had expensive earrings flushed down the toliet.
Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and her hands tied behind her back. That someone never was a class Mom for 19 six year olds.Somebody said a mother can't love the third child as much as the first. That somebody doesn't have three kids.
Somebody said a mother can find all her answers to her child-rearing needs in books. That somebody never had a two year old shove marbles up her nose.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery. That somebody has never taken their "baby" to Kindergarten.......OR watched them board a plane to South Africa with grandchildren in tow. (That one is for the grandmas!)
Somebody said your mother knows you love her so you don't need to tell her. That somebody isn't a mother!
So let me take the time to briefly yet from the depths of my heart express my gratitude and love to my Mom and Mother in-law. Thanks for teaching me what it is to have a mother's heart. Today especially may you hear, "Well done my good and faithful servant!"
