These amazingly wise words were spoken by my elderly mother five years ago as we sat in the ICU at the University of Iowa Medical Center. My sister, who was battling cancer, had just left the pharmacy with a prescription she had faught the insurance company for when on the way home she was hit by a drunk driver. In this moment of WORRY and anger and pain I was feeling more than a bit abandoned by God, but not my amazingly strong mother. She quietly sat with her rosary in hand and spoke these words. It was obvious where her strength was coming from. It is only as we grow older and wiser that we can fully understand and appreciate………………………mother knows best.
