Mother -- Her Essence and Greatness!
While reading this book one may sit back and ponder. You see, while we captured Lois and her Irish-ness, something special happened. We also captured her mother, her grandmothers, great grandmothers and her great-great grandmothers and ancestors. The historical greatest of moms! In this case, Irish moms! These women led the way and paved the paths for building and aspiring greatness. It starts with the mere fact of being a woman. The mother is the most perfect thing that exists in the life of human beings. A good mother is never forgotten, we take her forever in our hearts; that’s why it is so important that we value and cherish our mothers! They deserve it!
