Motherboards, made up of silicon components, are the main circuit control boards within a computer.
Mothers are made of flesh and blood, patience and love for the purpose of control within her family. (Silicone components are optional.)
Simply said, a computer’s motherboard connects all its other parts together.
A mother connects all of the family parts together.
Everything that makes a computer work: CPU, RAM, hard disk etc., are processed through the motherboard.
Everything that makes a family work: schedules, dirty clothes and diarrhea, homework and healthcare, food and fun, social directing and safety, taxi service and transport, are processed through the mother.
A motherboard turns a pile of components into a computer. It cannot adapt to change without reprogramming.
A mother turns a pile of components into a family. She adapts to changes, no reprogramming necessary.
You can’t hug a motherboard. A motherboard doesn’t laugh, cry, cheer you on, correct you when you mess up. But on the plus side, a motherboard doesn’t get eye-rolls and ‘lip’ when she routes one of her components in an undesirable direction.
Strict road school schedules.
A mother is usually softer and more attractive than a motherboard. She can change her appearance but her heart keeps the link between her and her components strong.
A motherboard is built for absolute control. A mother knows she will never be completely in control of another human being; but, she leads by example and gives it her best as only she knows how. She has been given an internal power beyond technology: Love.
And love is more powerful than any computer that has ever been or will be built.
Takes the byte out!

Dawn, I just read about my mother, Dovie Carpenter Pitts.
A special mother, I’m certain, especially raising 8 kids. Lucky them. dawn
