It Can't Be Said Enough...!
How could we possibly, in just one day, expect to properly thank the defining force in our lives.
Mothers have nearly always been a source of strength for many of us. There is just no way to ever mention how many ways they have had a positive effect on our lives...hosting the many parties, making the costumes for Halloween, serving as a keeper of secrets, as someone to share our sorrows and help celebrate our successes.
Mothers pass on to next generations the well guarded family recipes, the little known short cuts in preparation, the humorous stories not well known by others about their younger years, and gentle suggestions on ways to avoid the same traps and pitfalls they themselves experienced.
Mothers always believe in us, in spite of what we think. They never want anything but the best for us, never lose faith in us, ask for nothing in return for the most part except to silently hope not to be forgotten.
For these reasons and many more I didn't mention...I want to take this opportunity to wish all of the Mothers, the future Mothers, the grandmothers,even the wanna-be mothers a very happy Mother's Day!
I hope we can always be thankful for what they do, and that we remember to tell them so! Treat them with respect, think of them fondly, and love them with the same steadfastness that they do us.
Happy Mothers Day!!
Now, let's get some coffee and sit on the patio for a bit! Nice and cool outside this morning!
