Someone once said to Harry Truman’s mother, “Mrs. Truman, you must be very proud that a son of yours is in the White House.”
She responded, “Well, yes, but I have another son who lives down the road—and I’m just as proud of him.”
Ah, the wisdom of that mother! Thank God for mothers who love their children and who are impartial to them in spite of talents or lack of talents . . . their failures or attainments . . . their personality differences or behavioral characteristics.
A mother is the only woman who can divide her love among all her children, and yet each child still has all of it.
There is no depth to which a child can fall that diminishes a mother’s love. There is no height of success a child may achieve that will increase her love. Her love is protective, tender, consistent, impartial, understanding, forgiving, unchanging, unselfish, giving, contagious, everlasting. Solomon said of such wisdom: “Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her, and she will keep you” (Proverbs 4:6). —Author Unknown
