The following is from a card I gave to my mother on Mother’s Day back in 2011. I did not know it would be the next to the last Mother’s Day card I would give her but I’m so happy I was able to convey these words before she left this world:
It can’t be learned from a book or measured by a salary.
Yet being a great mom is probably the single most important contribution anybody could make to this world.
I should know.
Because I have you, a truly great mom.
I can’t imagine a force more powerful,
a love more valuable,
or a gift more lasting.
My grateful heart is living proof of that.
The Castle Lady
