“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

Are we not doubly blessed to know this first hand, and to be able to do this for our own children?  And even if we are not doubly blessed, we may be singly blessed, and that is still something to be thankful for.
