"Blessed is the Mother...

Who can hold onto her children while letting them go;

Who puts a tranquil home ahead of an immaculate house;

Who knows a kind act will be remembered longer than an easy word;

Who really believes that prayer changes things;

Whose faith in the future sweetens the present;

Whose Bible never needs dusting; and

Whose sense of humor is alive and well."
