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 troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

Washington Irving (1783-1859)

A truest friend...but you still keep a few innermost secerts deep down in your heart without sharing everything to her.
Mother is the one you mostly care in the world, so you would rather present your sunshine side and kick out those shadows

Hey, Daemon! The horse is out of the barn and down the road a piece. Mothers Day is past. Posters already opened a thread on Mothers Day under Knowledge and Culture, not that the subject isn't worthy of further comment. Where were you?

Yes, mothers can be wonderful, but in order to fully develop as a person you must separate yourself from your mother (and father) and become yourself; a person who will not necessarily endorse your mother's values or principles.

While there is no such thing as a perfect mother, neither is there such a thing as a perfect child, except in the eyes of a mother.
