The present global scourge should lead us to remember a group of humans who daily lay down their lives (both literally and figuratively) for the good of their children and families.
What is a virus beside a mother’s love?
What is fear when she is around?
Her touch is a message of hope,
Her smile is tender mercy.
At break of dawn, she sets to work
In nurture and care, she gets it done.
From stage to stage, we call on her,
With counsel and advice, she leads us on.
Oh, who can compare to a mother!
A treasure like her has not been found.
Happy Mother’s Day to the rock of our homes!
