A Mother's Day Tribute

A Song for Momma
What’s your favorite holiday?  For most children there is always Christmas, and Halloween, for young adults and young at heart there is St. Patrick’s Day, and Cinco de Mayo. For all those that know what’s important, the rest of us and those just mentioned as well, Mother’s Day is definitely a most favorite Holiday.  If I am not mistaken up until recently that’s when most greeting cards are sold, and a day when the most long distance calls are made.  I mentioned up until recently because the internet and cell phones have change commerce so much that the old marketing records may no longer apply.
Throughout my whole life it didn’t matter where I was, who I was with or whether I was working or on vacation, my mother could always expect a visit or a phone call and flowers from me on Mother’s Day.  How can you ignore such an important opportunity to thank the woman that brought you into this world?  While my mother was alive I never passed the opportunity to send her a card on my birthday to congratulate and thank her for giving me life.
As I am now retired I’ve had the privilege to stay home and look after more than one grandchild at a time.  I can say with experience and authority that I now know for a fact and have always suspected that being a full time mother, and/or a working mother, is a job that not everyone can do, and unfortunately children don’t come with instructions or operating manual, making it that much more difficult. 
For those of us that no longer have our mothers, we can celebrate the holiday, by remembering the blessing that they were in our lives, and by joining with our children in the celebration of honoring their mother.  All my respect and appreciation goes to all the special mommies everywhere as we celebrate Mother’s Day!  The best is yet to come….
