Happy Mother's Day to all the women who love a child, either small or grown.
My own relationship with my mother was tumultuous at best - I left her home at 15 - but as I have matured and raised my own boys, I learned this: She did the best she could with what she knew and never for a moment, do I doubt she loves me with all her heart.
I have two wonderful sons, such different children from the moment they were born. Iain is full of angst and passion about everything, he wants to fix the world and make it right for everyone. I ain is my "wayward" son, he sometimes loses himself on his quest for righteousness, but he always finds his way back. Liam is gentler, he wants peace in the world and everyone to get along, he is the sweetest child.
