As a mother, June was nurturing, and tried her best to support her sons through all of their ordeals, even though her youngest son, “Beaver” had a hard time staying out of trouble. She was dedicated to her family. When the boys came home from school each day, you could always find June in the kitchen chopping vegetables, or basting a roast, or icing a cake. And her kitchen was always immaculate as was the rest of the house.
So in short, she was a perfect mother, who was perfectly dressed, and kept a perfectly clean home. How can I ever live up to that standard?
Well, here's what I think. June remained calm when things got out of control at home, she tried to protect her sons by teaching them right from wrong, and she stood her ground when anything got in the way of that. Above all else, she was loving and nurturing, that's what makes her the perfect mother in my point of view, and that standard is one I can strive to achieve.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you "perfect" mothers!
