Mother's Day Thoughts from a Valentine
I saw a Valentine in a card shop
which had a very touching sentiment.
It was written from the point of view of a
grown person to his mother and the words
were: "You were my first Valentine." It got me
thinking how blessed we have been as parents
to have experienced such love and almost worshipful
admiration from our babies. What a privilege it was
to have seen the devotion, dependence and trust
in the eyes of our small children. What can ever
match that eternal heart-link between a mother
and her child? What a gift! A mother holds
enough warm memories in her heart to
last an entire lifetime. Think of that!
