    Every living being was conceived
    Nestled in a maternal womb,
    If we reflect, then we can
    Understand the great importance
    From our mother.
    We Honor her life’s giving
    Her nurturing Love. :-)

    The trick is to hand my mother a card when she hasn’t got her glasses on. I could have written “pickle pickle pickle” and she’d act all touched and get teary-eyed. Done.
