A Beautiful Mother

This is the face of a beautiful mother.  And this is what makes her beautiful, I can sum it up in one sentence...  I have never come across anybody who thinks of themself less and of others more.  This is something I highly value and most admire.  She gives and sacrifices her time, her means, her thoughts her everything to her children, family, neighbors, friends, acquaintences and those she doesn't even know. And she does this being the busiest person I know.  When someone is in need, she is there to fill that need and never needs to be asked.  She just recognizes it and just does it.  I am realizing that not everyone acts this way.  I certainly will never be able to live up to it, and although I leisurely aspire to be as selfless as my mother, right now I know I am just too selfish. 

Even though her acts of selfless love have in large measure gone unnoticed, it gives me comfort to know that her sacrifices have most certainly been recognized by God.  He knows of her beauty and one day she will be richly rewarded.   For giving everything she had to her selfish children who don't and can't possibly appreciate her the way she deserves.  Thank you mom for giving your all.  I am only just beginning to understand the great woman and mother you are.
