There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for my own mother. I can't imagine what my world would have been like without her.

She is a woman full of love and self-sacrifice. She not only raised myself and my two sisters, but also took in and raised five other children as if they were her own.

"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 trouble thickens 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
