Some people have a wonderful way of putting others at ease…they say and do the little things that will comfort and please. They have a special kind of warmth and they are quick to understand. They lend a helping hand and make this world a better place…a happier place by far, because there are people as marvelous as our mother. He that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him.
