Mother's Day

What a great idea--a day to honor Mothers.

I wonder if the people who came up with the concept had any idea what it would grow into in terms of economic impact and stress on the communications companies.

Or on husbands who strive to make their wives (and the Mother of their children) feel special and honored.

It's more than a card and a quick gift. And it is more than breakfast in bed.

It is something that should carry on beyond the day and into the weeks ahead as we remember all of the things that our wives do to make our lives easier and continue to care for our children even into their (the children's) adult years.

And so we gathered around the table today--with three mothers present and celebrated that special bond between Mom and kid.

We are all somebody's children--and call someone Mom.

What a great day to take time to thank them for all of the sacrifice and tears and support and sitting up through the sickness-filled nights making us feel better. I remember when I was a child, I would get terrible ear aches. And Mom would be there to warm my ear--I won't say how because I'm sure some agency would get their nose out of joint, but she held me and made me feel better through the pain.

Thanks Mom--

I love you and wouldn't be who I am today without your love and support.
