A Mother's Love Displayed

*For those of you following the Casey Anthony trial, I'll be checking in periodically until a verdict is reached!*

"A mother's love is forever
A mother's love is for free
It doesn't matter if you're good or bad
She's there for whatever you need"

The above are lyrics from Diana Ross song, A Mother's Love. These words couldn't have been more true today if Diana Ross showed up in that Orlando court room and sung them herself. When defense attorney Jose Baez called Cindy Anthony to the stand today, I tweeted a brief prayer in the hopes that God would give Cindy the strength to do and say the right thing. Reports had just surfaced this morning that the Anthony's attorney made a statement saying that they did not believe Casey was innocent, but would do whatever they could to keep her off death row. Now that's not a direct quote, but I think we all get the idea. So Cindy takes the stand and what does she do? She tells Jose Baez that SHE made those searches for chloroform on the family computer. She also claims she searched for "ruptured spleen", among other questionable inquiries such as; alcohol and peroxide. She's clearly taking the fall for her daughter by owning up to these devastating Google searches, even though her work records show that she was on the job at the time the searches were performed! I found myself ready to shout at my computer screen. How could she? But many have calmed me down by now and explained that a mother's love is boundless, it is unconditional.... never ending and abundant. I know my mother loves me, but I have to wonder if she would be "Luger by the thigh, right hand high" for me at my murder trial. Let's just say, I'm pretty sure we will never find out. But Cindy's actions today show the lengths she is willing to go to protect her daughter, even though she knows (and I'm sure she does) that that same daughter is responsible for taking away an innocent soul, and the one she possibly loved the most, the real victim in all of this, Caylee Marie.


  1. What a beautiful little girl. A mother's love is unconditional but that love also includes tough love and letting your child now when they are right and wrong and Cindy, we know you know, this was definitely WRONG! You can still love your daughter boundlessly.....when she is in jail.

  2. My jaw dropped when she got on the stand. I instantly knew she was lying and couldn't find a way to justify it.
