“If I could choose one aspect of motherhood to encourage others, it’s to be always available for my children and grandson. Being available for their development years, guiding their right of passage years, and standing in the shadows waiting to restore the picture when it’s broken... Participating in bringing up exemplary citizens and in preparing the next generation of leadership is how I see my role as a mother.”
