Walla: I did have to peek in to see what U posted for Mothers Day. I found some of them Quite amusing. Like the One Day a Year vacation, but we still have to work. In MN it is opening fishing weekend, so that leaves a lot of Moms on their own.
And are there any perks with the job? Well, that can be debatable.
I don't do Mothers Day. Personally I think it is an insult. One day a year, Really! My children do share their life with me and I appreciate their calls anytime they call to chatter and tell me they love me. Bless their hearts. I doubt that any of them will be busting their butts to call and tie up phone lines today being they know how I feel. They will leave the day open for those children that thinks this designated government appt day is so special. I think Mom's are special most everyday for what they do and put up with. They should get ongoing appreciation and respect for all they do. And I don't think it should be stored up for one day out of the year.
