(A life struggled for a success must have a purpose. Intending to have a successful future needs a set of goals and determination towards achieving them. Having nothing planned, is wasting your time resources for nothing.)
A mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.
