Motherhood is one of the most cherished and valued roles in our society. A mother's work requires extraordinary patience and compassion, and her example influences the formation of young lives.
Mothers make great sacrifices and serve as caregivers and role models to help their children embrace dreams and aspirations.
From these remarkable women, children learn character and values, the importance of giving back to their communities, and the courage to realize their potential.
With Love, Amma-Naana
Her love is like an island
In life's ocean, vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
And thro' the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.
