Mothers love is the most unselfish love in the world. This article will introduce three famous mothers in history.
1. Angela Cavallo
A mother is loving, devoted, and possesses mind-blowing brute strength. At least, thats the case with Angela. When her son Tony was working on a 1964 Chevy Impala in the driveway and the jack collapsed, she did exactly what youd expect any woman in her late 50s to do: She lifted the car up a few inches for five minutes until neighbors could pull her baby to safety. So next time you manage to trap yourself under heavy rotary kiln machinery, remember: As long as Moms in shouting range, its going to be just fine.
2. Mother Teresa
While Mother Teresa is not a mom in the biological sense of the word, we’ll make an exception for the winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. Receiving the call from God at the age of 12, she joined the Sisters of Loreto at 18 and began serving in India in 1931. She would remain there for the final 66 years of her life. While she is inevitably described as a “saint on earth,” letters released after her death revealed a complex woman who struggled with her faith “I spoke as if my very heart was in love with God tender, personal love. If you were [there], you would have said, ‘What hypocrisy.'” yet she never let doubt stop her from caring for the destitute. At her funeral, Indian Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral proclaimed, “Millions are feeling that they have become orphaned. I am one of the orphans.”
3. Sarah Bush Lincoln
Abraham Lincolns early life wasnt easy. As we all know, he was born in a log cabin. His mother died when he was only nine. He was distant from his father growing up, and they didnt get closer as the years passed. Fortunately, he had his stepmother, Sarah Bush Johnson, in his corner. She raised him as her own, encouraged his love of learning, and was so close Abe called her “Mother.” Up until he entered the White House and the Civil War started taking up his time, Abe made a point of visiting her, proving parenting’s about more than paternity.
