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 who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when trouble
thickens around us, still she will 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.
