"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still she will cling to us, and endeavor by her kind percepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." Washington Irving.
I have no idea who the author of this quote is, but I could swear that he was describing you!!!
I love you.
All my love
