Mom and Dad had six children, three boys and three girls. I was the second oldest. I can remember Mom was a darn good cook. She would wash clothes, clean house, take care of us kids and have a yummy dinner on the table by 4 pm. When Dad came in the door after work she had this special way about her that would make us proud to be a family.
She would make little pizza breads in the oven and make Kool-Aid when our friends came over. We would put on the old records, push the couch back to make room and dance all over the place, and laugh until we were in tears. Mom would make popcorn and lemonade and we would gather around the TV, acting like we were at the theater to watch a good movie.
She was always there for us, no matter how old we were. Mom always had the right answers. We all love you Mom every day, not just on Mother’s Day. We want to say thank you for all your hard work and motherly love. You are very special to us and always will be. Happy Mother’s Day. Judy
Whether your mother is living or not, I encourage you to take a moment and write a few memories about her. Whatever flashes into your mind first, write about it and tell Mom what things impacted you growing up. Share it with her…or share it with your own children in her memory. Honor Mom in a very simple and special way this Sunday. Just a thought.
