My mother is very nice and I love her very much. I'm glad we have Mother's Day because I like to buy her presents. Belinda Butler, Tryon Sixth Grade Conclusion: These were very difficult to decide. However, to be fair, one point was considered above others--unselfish love. Sev- eral of the youngsters expressed love for the things which THEY received from their mother. This is certainly to be commended. However, here the deter- mining factor was apprecia- tion for the mother as a person--not for material things. Children, ALL the letters would make your mothers proud!.
