Happy Mother's Day

It's a gray and rainy Mother's Day in this part of the world, but it's nice all the same. My sons made me pancakes (well, one son stayed in bed, but he's thirteen and generally contrary) and brought them to my room in the time-honored tradition.

One of my favorite film moments honoring mothers is this clip from My Left Foot, in which Christy Brown, assumed to mentally disabled even by his family, takes the painstaking time to write one word--with his left foot.

Try not to cry.

And Happy Mother's Day!
