The obvious answer to the ideal mother is to be found in Scripture. Every mother has failings, but the love of a mother is – all things being as they should – without equal, this side of heaven. My mother’s love was not less than those who will share their thoughts today, and sometimes I think my mother’s love is overdone – if there is such a thing. Whether it is or not, it is there, and that I know. There is something to be said about that.
I think I heard a country song not to long ago with a line in it about a mother’s love. I like the song and the sentiment.
