Just popping in to wish a happy Mother’s Day to all who act as mothers in any capacity.
The older I get, the more appreciation I gain for my own mother. I’m truly blessed in that my relationship with her and my father has always been a positive one.
I’ve heard it said that the best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other. My parents have done that for 52 years. I can honestly say that I have never heard them fight. My father is sensitive, quick-tempered and rather intense, while Mom is naturally upbeat and easy-going, good at defusing disagreements before harsh words are spoken and at asserting herself when necessary. They complement each other well. As parents, they knew how to set limits and instil values with love when my brother and I were growing up.
Thanks, Mom and Dad. Today, and always.
