Mother, May I

I hope you're as lucky as I am.   I hope Mother's Day had some deeper meaning to you than just a card or a phone call.   I hope you had someone to really thank, or someone to really remember with a great sense of fondness and love, with some specific memories of happiness.   And if you had difficulties with dear old Mom and she's gone, it's not too late to simply say, "I know you did your best, Mom".   Yeah, Moms are humans, too.

I hope that you were brought into this world by someone who makes it easy for you to say "thank you" to, not just once a year.   I hope you take time in the coming weeks and months to spend a little extra time with your aging Mom; I hope the words "I love ya, Mom" come easily to you.   Please, you don't have to wait for the annual commercial reminder from Hallmark cards next may.   Mark your calendar to do something nice next week or next month.

I hope that the words you said last week and wrote down for Mom to read were sincere and meaningful.  There is no greater love than that of a parent, and it is silly to compartmentalize your affection for one day, once a year.  If every day is children's day, as we used to hear as kids, then there's no reason that all of us can't find the time to make sure that Mother's Day comes around a bit more often through our actions and our words.  Think About It....
