The Importance of Mothers to Families

273 days. When was the last time you carried something for 273 days? Let alone took good care of it for that length of time. We carry things all the time, maybe a football in our arms, a hat on our heads, or a delicate watch on our wrists… But imagine if you couldn’t put those items down for a whole 273 days.
