Mother's Day

When : Second Sunday in May

Everybody has a mother and absolutely no one is more special than mom. Sure, dad is really important. And, grandparent's too. But moms, well they are just the greatest. Often taken for granted, they are always our strongest supporter. You can't do wrong in Mom's eyes. When you are hurt, or not feeling well....there is no one else that can help you more than Mom. I saw this clearly one day as our son was in the emergency room. Sure, dad was an important presence. But, the look in my son's eyes with his mom by his side was certain affirmation of mom's comforting ways, and importance.

So go out and celebrate Mother's Day. First and foremost, spend time with her. If you absolutely can not be there, take time for a long phone call. Flowers, cards, candy and gifts are all part of the day. But, mom wants some time with you far more than anything else.

Did you know? The first Mother's Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia

A mother's love is something that no one can explain,
It's made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may,
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away,
It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking,
It believes beyond believing when the world condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems,
It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation,
A many splendored miracle man cannot understand,
And another wonderous evidence of God's tender guiding hand!

    Thanks for remembering us mothers today! I do, of course, miss my Mom who has been in heaven since 2005, but am grateful for my daughters and granddaughter who live not too far away!
Mothers ARE special. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for sharing this. There is no one like your mom & no one can ever take her place. Mom has been gone for almost 3 years & I still miss her & think about her everyday.

    Wow, this is so beautiful and perfect. Thank you for sharing this. My mother is the absolute best mother in the world in my eyes. There are many different types of mothers, but it seems that God always knows which mother is going to be the right one for each of us - even for those who don't realize it. Mothers are God's greatest gift.
