"If I am worth anything later, I am worth something now. For wheat is wheat, even if people think it is a grass in the beginning".
There's a lot of things I could say right now but to keep from ranting: We appreciate you. Husbands and children alike; mother's are irreplacable and that is a fact everyone needs to know. Treat your mother with the respect and appreciation she deserves. Treat your wife with the respect and appreciation she deserves.
