If you were to write a job description for motherhood it might read something like this:
"A woman who runs on coffee and leftovers. She has a kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a broken heart. A woman who heals herself when she is sick and can feed a family of six on a single pound of hamburger. Eyes in the back of her head that see what she shouldn't, and eyes out in front that can look at a child when he messes up and say, 'I understand and I love you,' without so much as uttering a word."
There are a lot of mothers that fit that description here in the Heartland. Take some time this weekend to give your mom a hug and tell her how much she means to you and your family. She deserves it. Happy Mother's Day Mom.
