”A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us. When adversity takes the place of prosperity when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us, when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
an excerpt from Rice Mother by Rani Manicka
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
