The Mother's Day card my nephew got my sister featured a funny picture on the cover (I can't exactly remember the picture, now) and the following on the inside: "Motherhood...it's not for sissies." Now, let's set aside all humor.

A woman in Massachusetts may never walk again after breaking her back as a result of jumping from the third story of the burning building she was in. She was trying to save her 18-month old son. And she did.

And, based on every mother I've ever met in my life--including my own, that's just what mothers do.

Incredible story...and it happened on MOTHER'S DAY!
