My mother is always doing chores for our home, for our family. I overheard someone say my Mama's hands might be as rough as papel de liha from all that work. My mother's hands care for us and give us so much love, I can hold them forever.
ALEXINE: A mother's job is never done, but she never gives up because she does it for those she loves most.
