Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing moms out in the blogosphere!

Happy Mother's Day - TUTMother is a name held sacred
By most mortals of the earth;
It means great love and sacrifice
From the very day of birth,
A love that’s so full of beauty,
So tender, so very true!
Something, seemingly, from Heaven
That has come to me and you.
There’s no love so understanding
And so faithful to the end
As a Mother’s love—God bless her!—
That to us our Lord did send.

~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Mother” (1940s)
