A mother's love. My dad lost his mother when he was nine years old. She died from Scarlet Fever while my dad was a youngster, and I never forget a story he told about her last days. He said that while his mom was lying in bed suffering from the fever, one day she called to him and asked if he would bring her a cold glass of water. He was busy playing and told her that he was too busy to bring it right then, and she told him that it was all right, just keep on playing. She soon died, and as the years passed he said that her request for a glass of water haunted his memory many, many times. He would have given anything in the world for the chance to go back to that moment and get his mom a glass of cold water. I still think of that story and try my best to live in the 'now' - when someone in my universe needs something that I can provide, I am seldom doing anything that is really more important at that instant than to help that person. I have only that instant to create something good for someone else - when that instant is gone, so is the opportunity to give, planting a seed that will surely return one day multiplied many times when I have need.
A mother's love. Sure, this is a movie about two tough brothers in the wild west, and the beginnings of the Pony Express, complete with gunfights, fist fights, and a view of the tough and wild west. But it is also a story about a mother's love. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter on it, and if your Mom is close by, invite her to watch this cowboy western adventure with you. The Mother in this movie doesn't get top billing, but for my money she is the star of this adventure.
