May 12, 2024 - Happy Mother's Day

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers! Napoleon Hill wrote, Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. 

A mother who enjoys their children and has high hopes for their future, nurtures, protects, feeds, and encourages them to grow. A mother can only hope they are rewarded when they are old.

A mother's love is sacrifice. Labor pains and growing pains intertwine. Children do not come out perfect or with an instruction book. Like a thorny stem on a rose, the blooming of the rose is well worth the wait. 

An unknown author wrote:

Do more than exist: live.

Do more than touch: feel.

Do more than look: observe.

Do more than read: absorb.

Do more than hear: listen.

Do more than think: reflect.

Do more than just talk: say something.


A mother who does more than simply exist, touches your soul, looks carefully at details, reads to their children, hears the cry in the middle of an infant's sleep, answers the phone when their children call, listens with their whole heart and soul, thinks about others, and does so much more than just talk is a very special mother.

It has been said by many mothers. The hardest job they ever did was raise children. It takes patience, kindness, discipline, listening, problem-solving, commitment, dedication, perseverance, flexibility, time-management, meeting deadlines, consistency, reliability, and being there when needed. 

Whether a mother reads or writes stories or enjoys poetry, sometimes an author can speak for all mothers. Ralph Waldo Emerson does it so well in one of my favorite poems:

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people

and the affection of children,

to earn the appreciation of honest critics

and endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others,

to leave the world a bit better

whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,

or a redeemed social condition;

to know even one life has breathed easier

because you lived.

This is to have succeeded.

---Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Mother's Day!
