The bond between mother and son is a special one.  
It remains unchanged by time or distance.
It is the purest love - unconditional and true.
It is understanding of any situation and forgiving of any mistake.
It creates a support that is constant while everything else changes.
It is a friendship based on mutual love, respect, and a genuine liking of each other as a person.
It is knowing that no matter where you go or who you are, there is someone who truly loves you and is always there to support and console you.
When a situation seems impossible, you make it through together by holding on to each other.
It is strong enough to withstand harsh words and hurt feelings, for it is smart enough to always see the love beyond the words.
It is brave enough to always speak the truth, even when lies would be easier.
It is always there - anytime, anywhere - whenever it is needed.
It is a gift held in the heart and in the soul, and it cannot be taken away or exchanged for another.
To posses this love is a treasure that makes life more valuable.
