–A Mother’s Love (5/3/19)

Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had, and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed.  ~Linda Wooten

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.  ~Honoré de Balzac

A mother’s arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them. ~Victor Hugo

In the video we are watching today, two sisters tell the amazing story of their mother’s love for her children.  The story, unfolded by pieces of paper, is riveting and starkly told in short detail—the pieces of paper symbolizing the fragmented pieces of the sisters’ hearts as they reveal a mother whose love goes beyond the heartfelt, tender hugs and the steady, gentle support of a parent. This mother’s love changed her life forever and gave a family a new perspective on love and life.

What does this story say about the extraordinary love of a mother?
