Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers. It is an honored position and we should never take it for granted.

I like the following story that I came across — and hope you will, too.

"One Mother's Day at church, I noticed carts of little potted flowers beside the altar. The pastor asked all the children to come forward and pick out a plant for their mother. My children and I had certainly survived some very hard times, and this special bit of appreciation was just what I needed. I was surprised when my children presented me with a small, bedraggled flower plant. Yet I saw joy and pride in their eyes, and asked them, out of all those beautiful flowers, what had made them pick this plant for me? My son said, ‘This one looked like it needed you, Mom.'"
