Mothers are made in Heaven as we who love them know; with just a touch of stardust to keep their eyes aglow.  They have known tears as Heaven blesses the earth with rain.  They have known smiles as the sun shines after the shower again.  Mothers are made in Heaven.  Nowhere on earth there lies, the light like the glow of an angel, that shines in a mother’s eyes.
