A happy Mothers’ Day to all our readers who are moms! May you not have to cook today, may your children praise you, may Dad do the dishes and may you have a fun day! My mother departed this world a quarter of a century ago and there is not a day that I do not think of her. There are a million reasons why particular mothers are loved, but fundamentally mothers are held in the highest rank of human esteem because so many of them are capable of this type of self-sacrificial love. We learn our first lesson in love from our mothers, and it is doubtless the most important lesson we ever receive.
