Women know the way to rear up children (to be just). They know a simple, merry, tender knack of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense. And kissing full sense into empty words. -- Elizabeth Barrett Browning (from the poem, Aurora Leigh)
It's the little things that seemingly make a difference in a child's life. To kids, life is made up of these little things and we have no way of knowing which things they will remember, when they get older. Good mothers have known this from the beginning of time.
Good mothers have more than willingly assumed the role of nurturer and life-sustainer. It's not an easy job and at times, it may appear to be almost impossible.
But those who persevere will reap the many rewards that will certainly come, from doing the best job possible. To those of you who read PYY and have made (or are currently making) these sacrifices of which I speak, I hope one of those rewards comes today.
Happy Mothers Day.
