It has been said that the highest and noblest work in this life is that of a mother. Honestly, I don't know if that gives mothers enough credit.
Think of the myriad roles a mother plays in the life of her children: nurturer, doctor, banker, chauffeur, chef, judge, coach, stylist, housekeeper, manager, party planner, referee, psychologist, repairman, teacher, waitress, photographer ... the list can go on for a while.
I can think of no other venture, accomplishment, or triumph that can have as far-reaching of an impact as that of a mother. Mothers shape our lives, our character, and the very fabric of our reality. To be a Mother is to sacrifice for others, and there is no greater love than that. Even the very act of becoming a mother by bringing a child into this worldis a miracle, and a true act of sacrifice.
