“The Definition of Success”
You can use most any measure when your speaking of success.
You can measure it in a fancy car, expensive home, or dress,
But the true measure of your real success is the one you cannot spend.
It’s the way your kids describe you when they are talking to their friends!
May our mother’s memories bring you comfort in the days ahead.
