I grew up Anglican. So, today is really the day I should be celebrating Mother's day. Here, Mother's day is in May so today is just like any other day for us. If you know me personally, you'd know that Mother's day really doesn't matter to me. I appreciate my mother every single day of the year. I don't get off the phone without telling her I love her and that I appreciate her. I give her random hugs and random kisses. I tell the world every day she's the best mom on earth. I take her to dinner just because. I make sure she knows every day of her life she's the best thing that happened to me. Just so she knows. I don't want to wait till she's not here anymore. I want her to live knowing I love her.
I learned that lesson because on the day I lost my dad I don't remember if I told him how much I loved and appreciated him. I should've. I can't live in the past trying to decipher whether or not I told him so. All I can do is live in the present making sure not to create room for doubt should a time (long time from now-AMEN) come when she's not here anymore. She is the only living parent I have. So, I want her to know. everyday. That I love her. Don't wait to have only one (or no) living parent. Do it now!
|I am not a mother but I can't wait to be. No, I take that back. I can ;-)|
Mother's day shouldn't matter to you. Mother's day should be everyday.
If not for anything else.....Because.....
1. Her body carried your body for 9 months
2. If not for her organs feeding yours, you won't have fully developed
3. You were made from her. She practically "labored" you into the world. One of my friends describes being a mother as an oxymoron. She calls it painful joy. :-/
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers"So, until the day someone invents a machine that can successfully carry and nurture a fetus for 9 months, you should love and appreciate your mother EVERY DAY.
To mine, and yours, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!.... (P.S.- I'll be saying same in May too :))
And like Porky Pig (Looney Tunes) would say..
That's all folks :-)
