To All You Heroes Out There

Today is Mother's Day, our annual observation for all those people who are mothers or who act in a mothering capacity for the young people in our lives (including, I'm assuming, most of the people who read this blog).  Being a mother is a joy and a privilege, a challenge and a constant calling up of all of our wisdom and patience and all of other other best qualities.  For most of us, it is the toughest job we will ever do--but there is nothing more important, and ultimately, more satisfying (at least, on the good days) in our lives.

It is the job of love.  It is the work of heroes.

So for all you heroes out there, I share this song by Jamie O'Neal to remind you how important you truly are:

I honor your contributions, and hope you have a wonderful day!
