Today is the day we celebrate our mothers and thank them for everything they've done for us throughout our lives. Those of us who are older have more to be thankful for than the younger folks out there whose mothers have yet to share all the joys and sorrows that their children bring over the course of years.
I will be giving my mother her card today, have flowers that are being sent to her, and am taking my mom out for supper this evening (or perhaps Monday night), but those are just the physical tokens that we give to our mothers on this day. It's important today to spend some time with our mothers, to cook them a meal or take them out to a restaurant, but above all to share some quality time with our mothers.
Hug your mother today, if you live close enough to do so. Make sure you give her a call today if you do not.
I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. We may not show it year round, but you *are* very much loved and cherished by us, your sons and daughters.
