Mother: An Epitome

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there, seeing their job as building lives for the future!

Sister and I agreed to buy mom a super huge greeting card for Mother's Day. Mom is a very simple person that even just a sweet letter with sincerest thoughts of ours makes her feel special. She delights in little things we give her and is proud of every small achievement we attain. Tears trickled down mom's face while reading our letter to her!

My parents are wonderful gifts God has given me. I thank God forever for putting them in my life. I do not know what words to utter out of gratitude to Him. In the meantime, here is a short, lovely quote from the author of the book I am currently reading:
A mother is the one who fills your heart in the first place. She teaches you the nature of happiness: what is the right amount, what is too much, and the kind that makes you want more of what is bad for you. A mother helps her baby flex her first feelings of pleasure. She teaches her when to later exercise restraint, or to take squealing joy in recognizing the fluttering leaves of the gingko tree, to sense a quieter but more profound satisfaction in chancing upon an everlasting pine. A mother enables you to realize that there are different levels of beauty, and therein lie the sources of pleasures, some of which are popular and ordinary, and thus of brief value, and others of which are difficult and rare, and hence worth pursuing. - Amy Tan
We love you, mommy!
