A Mothers’ Day Thought

8 May


Frances Brundage_Mother holding child and candle 1902God gives us but one mother. Remember, she has borne for you that which no other human being has or can.

Remember that in the natural course of events the grave will in a few years, at most, close over her, leaving you behind.

Remember that when she is gone, you will think of her faults and her failings with pitiful tenderness, and want to cover them from all human eyes.

And remember, also, that the deepest sting which sorrow has for us is hidden in those soul-harrowing words, “if I only had!” or “had not!”

It would be blessed to live, no matter what the provocation, so that, standing beside an open grave, those words could have no sting for us.
