Every time a mom or a grandma calls us about her (grand)child, no matter if they are 15 or 50, it makes us think about Washington Irving's words:
“A mother is the truest friend we have,
when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us;
when adversity takes the place of prosperity;
when friends desert us;
when trouble thickens around us,
still will she cling to us, and endeavor
by her kind precepts and counsels
to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
Today we give all the amazing women, all the amazing moms and grandmas who call us to help their loved ones a big heartfelt hug and we thank them for the courage, persistence, perseverance and unconditional love that they show us every day.
You help us change lives for the better, you teach us to never give up and you inspire us to be better than we ever thought we could be.
Hats off to you from Saint Jude Retreats!
