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, but won't be taking my mom out for supper this evening due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though I normally would. 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. (This isn't really possible these days, given the state of the pandemic still at large in the world, but it's the thought that counts.)
Make sure you give your mother a call today.
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.
