The Hand That Rocks The Cradle...

...Is the hand that rules the world.   

These words from the poem written in the 1800's by William Ross Wallace remind us of the powerful influence mothers have on our society. More than a provider of love and care, a good mother is life’s greatest blessing. Nobody’s words are more soothing. Nobody’s embrace is warmer. Nobody’s heart loves stronger.

A good mother doesn’t just bring you into the world; she also walks you through life.

Many mothers today not only bring life into this world, work in the home and nurture children, but they work outside the home as well.  It amazes me how mothers are able to juggle diverse responsibilities. Whether a mother works in the home, works outside of the home or both, their influence on the lives of their children is essential to a well developed individual.

Whether you call her Mother, Mom, Momma or Ma, be sure to call or visit her today and thank her for enriching your life. Even if she is no longer is with us, her character and good deeds live inside you and you can give back in life in a way that will certainly honor her life.

To all the hardworking, nurturing women who make the world a better place by instilling goodness and love in their children, I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.
