An appreciation of everything that mothers do, this beautifully illustrated little book - a celebration of motherly love in all its manifestations - really gets to the heart of every mother's bond with her children. Our mothers shape us in myriad ways, many of which we don't appreciate until we are fully grown. Their gifts to us are attributes, often unsung, such as wisdom, patience, forgiveness, and belief in ourselves. In "My Mother's Gifts", adult daughters and sons lovingly recall their own mothers' insightful beliefs, special words of advice, and acts of wisdom in all sorts of circumstances, whether times are tough or the going's great. They also reflect on the importance that their maternal relationship has had on their own lives. This is a book that will warm the heart of any mother.
