The Love of a Mother
The giving of life
To another is not the end,
But the beginning of being a Mother.
The living of life
For another is not a chore,
But the delight of being a Mother.
The receiving of life
From another is not the reason,
But the reward of being a Mother.
The giving, the living,
the receiving of life
is but the love of a Mother.
-Pastor Lawrence C. Raftery
