Ray's comment stuck in the forefront of my mind. Ray was a confident man, seemed rather well to do, and was not afraid to admit he was a momma's boy. What an example to all of us. Just by Ray's smile and demeanor you could tell how much he appreciated and loved his mom. Every one's momma should come next to God. Without our moms' we would be nothing, literally.
There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.
When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.
