“A mother is a person who seeing there are four pieces of pie for five people promptly announces she never did care for pie.” Tenneve Jordan My life is intimately entwined with the lives of two mothers; my own and the mother of my children. These amazing mothers have a solid array of common traits which reveal their unusual and rare character. 1. They both sacrificed careers to nurture the tender lives of the children that came to them. 2. They both gave up nice things to see that their children’s needs were met. 3. They both gave up hours and hours of sleep to ease a sore throat or calm night fears. 4. They both live model lives that reflected socially solid moral values and taught those values to their children. 5……The list could go on forever. In a materialistic world where social status and possessions have more value than children, it is becoming increasingly rare to see women whose prime desire is to fulfill their greatest contribution to society…raising healthy children. Mothers reign supreme!!
