H.R. No. 2822
         WHEREAS, For nearly  a century, a day has been set aside each
  year to honor those very special women among us, the mothers who
  brought us into this world, protected us, and taught us how to make
  our way, and on May 11, 2014, Texans and indeed all Americans will
  join in celebrating Mother's Day in the United States; and
         WHEREAS, It is fitting that Mother's Day should be observed
  in the spring, when we see evidence of nature's renewal all around
  us; mothers give life, and they give unconditional love,
  encouraging their sons and daughters to work hard and to follow
  their dreams; and
         WHEREAS, On this meaningful day, we pay tribute to mothers
  for their determination to give their children the keys to a bright
  and promising future; resourceful and fearless in looking out for
  their loved ones of all ages, they are heroes in every sense of the
  word; and
         WHEREAS, Motherhood has been called "the toughest job you'll
  ever love," for it encompasses a tremendous range of challenges,
  opportunities, frustrations, and joys, and the ultimate rewards,
  intangible though they may be, are among life's most poignant and
  enduring; all mothers share a powerful bond in the love they have
  for their children, and that love, strong and true, enriches our
  world beyond measure; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 83rd Texas
  Legislature hereby commemorate Mother's Day 2014, honor all
  mothers, including the members of this chamber who are moms, and pay
  tribute to the mothers who have passed on but endure in the memories
  of all those who held them dear.
  Speaker of the House     
         I certify that H.R. No. 2822 was adopted by the House on May
  26, 2013, by a non-record vote.
  Chief Clerk of the House
