THE CLOSEST THING THERE IS TO HEAVEN
When Mitch was scared of the future, he always received great comfort from his mother. My life experience tells me that is how things have always been: in times of trouble we cling to faith and our mother's embrace.
I don't think that's a coincidence either, for mothers are the closest thing there is to heaven. I have seen the power of both, and I am forever grateful.
As long as mothers walk the earth, there will be a measure of comfort and peace for weary souls who seek relief. Even a hug from my wife, when I find myself deep in grief, brings my heart a comforting peace. When I think of heaven in all its splendor and promises yet to be, I can't help but wonder if I'll see mothers ... as far as the eye can see. Nothing would be more peaceful ... nothing more heavenly.
