This article made me want to take more time connecting with my grown kids and their kids as I do worry life will be to short and I don't want to waste it taking care of things that are less important like house n yard work. I have 17 grandkids plus a few more I claim in love through our years doing foster care. Guess it is time to sell the old family home and downsize to an RV so we can go be with them enough to make a difference for good in their lives. In the meantime I think I'll start writing personal letters to each of them , even the ones who can't read yet. :)

In addition to remembering the blessing of all mothers out there, there are also the moms (and grandmoms) that have had to bring the courage and strength of two people to the table as they've had to raise kids alone, for whatever reasons. It's a good time to remember their selfless giving.

That is a good article made me miss my mom. She passed away 11 years ago at a young age of 63 from a stroke. I miss her more now then ever. I think i miss her more because my own kids did not get to have her in their life. She never missed one of my games in high school all the way through college.Now with my son playing college baseball i always tell him if your grandma was a live she would not miss one of your games. Love and miss you mom.

Wonderful article -- motherhood never ends. There is no retirement plan, only the plan of salvation.

I can also say that my life has not only been blessed and influence by my mother, my grandmothers and my wife. But I have also been the recipient of influence from other women who may or not have been mothers in their own right, but they were motherly and I shall ever be grateful for the efforts they made to teach and to influence me and my life.

This article made me remember the love my Mother shared with everyone she knew, especially her children. She passed away when she was only 56 years old, but left a legacy of 7 living children, and a posterity of over 300 at this time. Her Love for each of us, and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, still brings tears to my eyes. If only I could be like my Mom.
