A Mother

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~

What You Read

It is what you read when you don't have to
  that determines what you will be when you can't help it.
