Mother's Day is a time to honor and show our love for the special women in our lives - and for those of us who no longer have the privilege of having our Mothers in our lives, it is a time to reflect on all the things they did to make us the people we are today.
My sister and I were blessed with an exceptional mother, who along with our father, instilled the values that are so important to me today. As I think of my Mother I think of the wonderful childhood I enjoyed. While we may not have been financially rich, our lives were enriched every day by the love and compassion of our mother.
Today I think not only of my mother, but also of how blessed I am to have my wife Janet. She has been a wonderful, loving wife and mother, raising our three children to become responsible, productive adults. Now Janet and I have the joy of watching our children become parents themselves.
Please join me in wishing a very Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful women in our lives.
