We're celebrating Mothers Day with today's definition, and with a few words from the Bob Dylan song Lord Protect My Child:
Just to see him at play makes me smile
No matter what happens to me
No matter what my destiny
Lord, protect my child
Happy Mother's Day ~ James

Oh great, now I get to spend all day with mascara running down my face. I almost couldn't write anything. The lyrics to the song are so beautiful and all at once bathed me in memories of my mother, memories of the birth of my daughter and of the day I was blessed to be there for the birth of her son. Thank you, James.
