A good mother is there with a hug, a kiss and a smile even if she’s just gotten on your case about something.  A good mother learns even more from her children than she teaches them and she’s okay with that.  She’s like a velvet covered brick – soft and comforting to the touch but strong and able to hold up her family like a good foundation should be.
