I read this quote today — and was again inspired by my dear mother:
“… All the fine-sounding theories of Mrs. Carr-Boldt and her friends crumbled to dust. What would they leave when they were gone? All of their high accomplishments and all of the public’s applause would die with them.
But Margaret could do what Mother did — just take the nearest duty and fulfill it for posterity and eternity, sleep well, and then rise joyfully to fresh effort …” [Mother , by Kathleen Norris]
Happy Mother’s Day, Mama.
