Good morning, Jefferson Middle School. This is Mr. Balanon with a few words of wisdom.

Listen to what writer Kesaya E. Noda, author of the essay "Growing Up Asian-American," said about her mom:

My mother is a woman who speaks with her life

as much as with her tongue.

What a beautiful way to rephrase the old expression: Actions speak louder than words.

The women who mother us speak to us in many ways. They tell us of their love every time they offer an embrace or a nod of approval. They tell us of their concern every time they prepare a meal or offer a blanket when we're cold.

Next time you are with the person who mothers you, notice all the little things she does that tell you that she cares. Then write a letter of appreciation. It's the best Mother's Day gift you could ever give her.

With something to think about, this is Mr. Balanon reminding you to choose wisely today. Use your heart as well as your mind.
