Why does a child need a mother?


 To tell them they are beautiful…to make sure they don’t become spoiled…to teach them to play fair…



to assure them that heartache will not last forever…to believe in them when it seems that no one else does…to be a trusted confidant…


to encourage them to be serious about their work…to make sacrifices so that they will not have to sacrifice…to teach them the importance of compromise…


to steer them away from the darkness…to protect them until they are old enough to protect themselves…to teach them manners…


to teach them how to be humble…to teach them appreciation for what others have done for them…to teach them that all people are worthy of respect…


to tell them often that they are loved…to hold them when they need comfort…to teach them to pray…


to show them the importance of laughter…to give them good memories…to let them be themselves…


and of course, to show them God’s love.
