I am convinced we are put on Earth for several reasons. We are given tasks to perform in addition to just getting along with others.  As we age, we gain wisdom and learn to love in ways we never thought possible.

Those who have yet to live life fully, they tend to think that being a mother is a simple task.  Taking care of kids and relaxing throughout the day is an easy life.  How hard can it be?  Look in the eyes of any good mother to see the answer.

I know a woman whose task in Life was to raise nine amazing people and reap the benefits of their love.  She was most successful in that task, to the point she now has more grandkids and great-grandkids than there are Chinese.  Well, that may be a little exaggeration, but there are a lot of them.

Most women would spend the remainder of their days relishing in their produce, but this Dear Lady has not been satisfied with just the creation of nine kids.  Because of an intense love of people and their lives, she chose to study and write about others in their endeavors and successes.

It is through her life I have the gifts I cherish and the love of writing.  It is because of her I am proud to tell others who she is and what she has done.  She is my mother!

Happy Birthday, MotherDear!
