My mother is one of the wonders of the universe. No matter how busy she is, she’s always got time for me. I remember a time when she cancelled plans, popped into her car, and drove several hours just to make sure that I was OK after an accident. I wasn’t, and I was so grateful to have her there with me. This quotation reminded me of my mother; perhaps it will resonate with you as well.

“When did you have time to make all that stuff, Mom? It’s wonderful, but how did you do it?” For years, Diana kept her mother’s answer buried in the furthest reaches of her memory. Now, it came back to her. “Love always makes time,” Iona had said. -J.A. Jance, Hour of the Hunter

    Liz,
    This prompt truly touched my heart! Love does always make time, especially when you’re a mom. I loved your example with your own mom going out of her way to make sure you were ok. Our moms are always terrific people to write about in our journals, and this prompt makes it even more heart felt. My mom has been a source of inspiration to me many time in my writing/journaling.
