Happy Mother’s Day

It is a shame that we need a special day to pause from our busy schedules to remember the people that we love. Important days like Valentines, Mother’s, Father’s, and Grandparent’s Day should not have to be on the calendar for us to stop and schedule a few hours at the dinner table with or call on the phone.

It is a shame that holidays such as Mother’s Day have to be put on the calendar for us to remember to call her to say hello or send her a bouquet of her favorite flowers.


The mere years of love and faithful devotion required by our Mother’s for us to survive the tenuous journey of totally dependent infancy to independent adults ready to stand upon our own two feet should be enough for us to daily show our gratitude through little acts of attention and words of love that let our precious Mother know that we are grateful for her years of sacrifice on our behalf.

But sadly it is so easy to get caught up in the minutia of life and the daily grind to survive. The once daily calls we promised that we would make grow sparse as work and exhaustion blend one day into another. Before we realize it, days and weeks have gone by since we last said those words our Mother’s hold so dear, I love you Mom, thank you for all that you have done.

Before we know what has happened, we find that we have gotten so caught up in securing our success or finding our path to happiness that we have forgotten to take time out and ensure the happiness of the ones to whom we owe so much. Too late we realize that we have been guilty of missing the golden opportunities to bring a smile and cheer the heart of one who played a critical role in our current success, for whom no sacrifice was too dear to ensure that we wore a smile.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s out there, and an extra special Happy Mother’s day to my own Mother. Thank you for all that you have done!


So on this day that honors Mother’s everywhere I pause to join the throng and say, Happy Mother’s Day to my own Mother, and thank you for all that you have done, and I am sorry for all the times I got to busy with my own world to bring a little happiness to yours.

  1. Thank you for the comment. I am glad that you like the post and my site. I am sorry I did not reply earlier, but I did realize that Word Press was sending almost every comment to spam. To answer your question I have been blogging for nearly a year. But I feel in love with writing in high school and was so excited to learn about Word Press because it has given me a chance to do what I love.


  2. Wow, incredible blog format! How lengthy have you ever been blogging for? you made running a blog look easy. The overall look of your site is fantastic, let alone the content material!
