    This is truly a beautiful piece. Please read this at a slow pace digesting every word and in leisure. Do not hurry, this is a treasure.

    For those lucky enough to still be blessed with your mom, this is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, it is even more beautiful. For those of you who are moms, you will love this.

    The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said, "Yes, and the way is hard and you will be old before you reach the end of it, but the end will be better than the beginning."

    But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Nothing will be lovelier than this."

    Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can be done."

    And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to her children, "A little patience and we are there." So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would have not done it without you."

    And the mother, when she lay down that night looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned foritude in the face of hardness." "Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I have given them strength."

    And the next day came strange clouds which darken the earth, clouds of war, hate and evil, and the chilren groped and stumbled, and the mother said, "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light." And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night, the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God."

    And the days went on, the weeks, the months and the years, and the mother grew old, she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And Mother said," I have reached the end of my journey, and now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone and their children after them.

    And the children said, "You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said, "We can't see her, but she is with us still, a mother like ours is more than a memory, she is a living presence."

    Your mother is always with you, she's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks, she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your mother lives inside your laughter, and she's crystalized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love, your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can seperate you.

    Not time, not space and not even death!
