The painter has with his brush transferred the landscape to the canvas with such fidelity that the trees and grasses seem almost real; he has made even the face of a maiden seem instinct with life, but there is one picture so beautiful that no painter has ever been able to perfectly reproduce it, and that is the picture of the mother holding in her arms her babe.
-William Jennings Bryan
That’s my mama and me on my very first birthday. Mom, you’ve given me the best possible gifts – first my own life and then yours. Thanks for always being there for our family. You’re wonderful! (And so are you, Nana! You’re really like a second mom to me. Much love…)
To all the mothers in my life and to all of the mothers who somehow found their way to this little corner of Cyberspace, happy, happy Mother’s Day!
