"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take." ~Cardinal Mermillod
One day after school, many years ago, I was watching an episode of Little House on the Prairie. I was probably about fifteen or sixteen years old. Anyway, at this particular time in my life, I had to go home with my friend Michelle each day after school and wait there until one of my parents could pick me up.
Michelle had a job after school, so many afternoons, I would wait by myself, and watch television until my parents arrived. I would work on my homework too, of course, but this day that I am telling you about, I was watching Little House on the Prairie.
The episode that I was watching was called "Country Girls," and it was (and still is) my very favorite episode of this show. I also love the episodes which are about Laura and Almanzo (Manly) falling in love.:)
Anyway, as I was watching this episode of Little House on the Prairie, I started sobbing. It made me think of all the sacrifices my mom had made for my brother(John) and me. So I called her at work, and I was bawling! She was afraid something bad had happened to me.......She asked me what was wrong, and I told her (while sobbing) that I was watching Little House on the Prairie, and I wanted her to know how much I loved her.
She still teases me about that to this day, and I still cry every time I see this episode. I found this clip from "Country Girls" on You Tube. I especially love the part where Laura reads her essay to the whole crowd of students and parents, and Ma and Pa's faces speak a thousand words of love.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you!
Thank you for always loving me.:)
