Sunday Citar - Happy Mother's Day



Renoir

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
Washington Irving

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

I recently read a WWII book and there is a reason why those soldier who were dying on the field cried out for their mothers - not their wives or girlfriends.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
