Thought for the Day - The Sacrifice of a Mother

There is nothing that pull our heartstrings more than the thought of our own dear mother's sacrifices for us.  I remember when I was a child, reading the story of the great ballerina Anna Pavlova.  I don't remember much about the book except for the part when her poor widowed mother made the huge sacrifice of letting her daughter go.  It had been the two of them for so long but the young girl dreamed of dancing in the prestigious Russia ballet company in Moscow.  Her mother would do everything she could to make that dream come true.

It still brings tears to my eyes remembering their touching good-byes.
