“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." (c) Washington Irvin

So, today my Mom is having a birthday party back home that I sadly cannot attend. :( Due to these circumstances I wanted to give her a lil shine that let her know I was thinking about her.
