A Life Well-Lived and Loved

Stephen Colbert’s mother died last week, so when he returned to do his program, he began it with this tribute to her. No politics. No tongue-in-cheek remarks. Just genuine reflection on a mom who loved well and was well-loved. It was convicting, as I would love this to be said of me. Whether or not you agree with his politics, his tribute to and regard for his mother speaks volumes for his character–and hers.
