Mothers' Day

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." - Abraham Lincoln

A partially deaf boy came home from school one day carrying a note from officials at the school. The note suggested that the parents take the boy out of school, claiming that he was "too stupid to learn."

The boy's mother read the note and said, "My son Tom isn't 'too stupid to learn.' I'll teach him myself." And so she did.

When Tom died many years later, the people of the United States of America paid tribute to him by turning off the nation's lights for one full minute. You see, this Tom had invented the light bulband not only that, but motion pictures and the record player. In all, Thomas Edison had more than one thousand patents to his credit.

"My mother was the making of me." - Thomas A. Edison (1847-1931)
