There is none, in all this cold and hollow world, no fount of deep, strong, deathless love, save that within a mother's heart. –Herman

The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. Proverbs 10:1

            I had a little, cheap sports car when I was seventeen. School let out at three and I had to be at work at 4 but I had left something at home I needed at work. I got in my car and proceeded down HWY 87. Living in rural Alamance County, it was nothing to have a tractor on the road. Well today wasn’t my day because one was headed the same way I was! I had three cars in front of me and we were going a whopping 15 MPH. So, what do I do? I KICK IT! I got to the bottom of the hill I was going down and who comes over the top of the other side…Mr. State Trooper! Why couldn’t he be eating a donut with one of his buds? Man, he spun that car around faster than a burn out at the end of the Indy 500! BAM! He got me!

            As I set there in his car I had the nerve to ask, “Can you give me a warning ticket?” He said, “Son, I ought to take you to jail. You’re lucky!” Well, then the panic, worry, and fear set in. What is Dad going to do? What will Mom say? I had to go to court. What will the judge say? What will Dad do? What will Mom say?

            Well, when I got home I had to give the ticket to Mom first. The look on her heart was enough to kill me. I wept like a baby! The disappointment in her eyes said it all; you let me down, I had hopes for you, you’re nothing but a failure!

            I am glad that didn’t last long! When I went to court, Mom was there. When I had to have someone drive me to work, Mom took me. When I needed anything, Mom stepped in to help and she gave me hope! There is something about a Mother’s love that transcends this world!
