Every bad decision and regret I have in my life can be traced back to a time when I held no belief in God. The only prayer I have for my son is that his faith never waivers. There is never a darker moment in a person's life than when they allow themselves to have doubts and disbelief that distances yourself from Christ. You become lost. I was lost and I pray every day that never happens to my son. If he never becomes successful, by the worldly standards of materialism, but remains a strong and faithful Christian all his life, even through adversity, than I will consider my vocation as his mother complete.

Yes Maam!

One of the most charitible quotes ever made by a mother about her sons soul:
It was the future King St. Louis IX mother who said about her boy, "I would rather see him dead at my feet than have him commit one mortal sin."
Now thats love!

You definitely understand your vocation as a mother. Keep it up!

I get looks whan I say these things. With 2 special needs sons, worldly success may not be in our sight. But since the world will jeer and make fun, they need to turn to Christ for strength when I am gone. That is the legacy I hope to leave. That and bad knees from kneeling if they ever excavate my body.
