Photo of the Week

Volunteer photographer Pat Van Dyke didn't identify this mother and daughter when she took their picture at the Sunset Beach playground, but they perfectly represent the importance of mothers in the lives of their children – for fun, consolation, instruction, protection, companionship, security and guidance. Mothers love their children unconditionally and place their needs above her own. Being a mother is the most demanding "job" in the world – it is also the most rewarding.
