Mothers' Day Thoughts

Pick out the flowers – pay through the nose; Vendors take all they can get, I suppose. Treat her to dinner, give her a kiss; Mothers have waited all year just for this. If she lives distant, pick up the phone; Tell her how much all the kiddies have grown. Mail her a package, pick out a card; Then you’ll be covered in that whole regard. Yes, it’s all hokey and silly and trite; Still, not to do it just wouldn’t feel right. This is the day we must all celebrate; Tomorrow won’t cut it - you can’t do it late. If you’re a mom, then enjoy all the fluff, Though really, it never could be quite enough. All of our efforts, while often ignored, Have taught us that motherhood is our reward.

A brilliant final line! We should act like mothers FOR her on this, her most special of days, (if not the rest of the year, too!) Marvelous cadence and rhyming... (even though 'you can't do it late,' Happy Mothers' Day to you!!!) Best wishes, Keith

Hi Ilene You've captured every thought I've ever had about mother's day in your clever Ilene way. I'd say Happy Mother's Day - except I haven't made the cut. love, Kathy
