    My mother gave me her blessing every day of my life. She was always there for me, even when I did not realize it at the time. My mother was a widow longer than she was married. When my dad passed away, my mother was my rock. She hid her sorrow so that I would not completely fall apart. When my mother needed me when she became so frail that she was unable to walk, I became her rock and showered her with the love she gave to me all my life.
    Of the 50 Life Lessons, I would choose: “Be more interested in loving than in being loved. Along with this, think of other people more than yourself.”
    I would hope that my nieces and nephews would ask for my blessing. I shower them with all the love they can endure, and I hope that they see by my example, rather than my words, that God loves them even more than I love them!
