A wonderful gift! Aug 26, 2005
We all have a special woman in our lives. You know the one; she wiped tears from our eyes and occasionally her own. And she always listened to us happily chatter about life or empathized with us when we were troubled. She was the one who stayed up waiting patiently for us to come home safely before she closed her eyes for the night. Then there were the times that that special woman patiently taught us what needed teaching; like loving God and others. That special woman in our lives may be our mothers, or perhaps it's a grandmother, aunt or some other special woman who unselfishly stepped in to help shape our lives.
Kathryn Andrews Fincher pays homage to these special women in Mama Knows Best. It is beautifully illustrated by the author with pictures that will warm your heart and perhaps even shake loose a memory or two.
Some of the verses are written by the author, but the pages are also filled with the poignant and thoughtful words of others, people like Rose Kennedy, Maria Montessori, Alex Haley, George Eliot as well as nursery rhymes and Bible verses.
One of my favorite verses (author unknown) in the book is: "A mother is someone who dreams great dreams for you, but then she lets you chase the dreams you have for yourself and loves you just the same." How beautiful is that?
Armchair Interviews says: Mama Knows Best is a beautiful gift for the woman or women in your life that you wish to honor and show your appreciation for all they've done for you.
