This woman…

… is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving

Whilst my heart is given to the Lord Jesus Christ, and my wife is in it always, there is a special place reserved just for this other very special lady.

Born in Winton, Queensland on this day in 1936.

This is my Mum.

The sweetest sounds to mortals given
Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven.
~William Goldsmith Brown

My wish for her, on this marvelous day, is that which is spoken of in the Holy Bible:

May your father and mother rejoice; may she who gave you birth be joyful!
Proverbs 23:25

May you always be joyful… love you mum.
