Love, love, love this quote by Barbara Bush, wife of President George Bush. She was speaking to graduates of Wellesley College:
“But whatever the era, whatever the times, one thing will never change: Fathers and mothers, if you have children, they must come first. You must read to your children and you must hug your children and you must love your children. Your success as a family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens in the White House but on what happens inside your house.” (Washington Post, 2 June 1990, 2.)
On days when you feel that the world is in a downward spiral and you think there is nothing you can do about it, remember Mrs. Bush’s profound thought; what you do as a mother matters. Small and simple things, reading, giving a hug and plainly loving your children will reap benefits on the world that will be seen and felt by generations.
You can do this.
All my love,
