“Welcome ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages to the greatest show on Earth.” I can see the ring master standing in the center ring with his signature black hat and red coat with long tails. His voice carries like a sonic boom as it reaches out and grabs every last ounce of everyones attention. “Please, feast your eyes on the high wire for one of the most thrilling feats of balance in the world. On the wire is the greatest logistical genius in the world. Able to balance an entire family on their back and keep moving forward without missing a step. This extraordinary human can do things that baffle the normal mind. This super hero can be in four places at one time and be there with a smile. Ladies and gentlemen without further introduction I present to you for the rest of your life, MOM” “Please don’t forget to visit the amazing, all seeing, all knowing, all cooking, all cleaning, Madam Mom before you leave”
Mom, what a title, the cheif, the CEO, and the doctor of most families. These ladies that brought us into this world have given so much even when they had nothing more to give. We honor them once a year when we should be honoring them year around. They don’t need a card on Mother’s day to tell them how wonderful they are and how much we love them, they need to here it and see it all year long.
A mother is a mother forever, no matter if their child is new born, a teenager, a mother or father themself, or if their child has left them way to soon. Speaking of which, if you know a mother that has lost a child please reach out to them. Please mention their childs name so they know you have not forgotten them.
To my mom, Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for all you done for me, all you have taught me and all you have given me. Thank you for your wisdom. Thank you for being a part of raising me and allowing me the honor of being your son. You are the best!
Kellie, Lindsay’s mom, thank you for being Lindsay’s and Jarrett’s mom. Thank you for helping to raise our children. I know your heart is heavy today, but know that Lindsay is with you in spirit and Jarrett is there to help you through the day. Stay strong and continue on as a mother, a wife and survivor.
To my wife Kelli, where do I begin. You are a mother and grandmother. You are the one that keeps the ship headed in the right direction. You are a mom and a step mom. You have helped raise three and then helped me with Jarrett and Lindsay. You show Jarrett love and most of all you show him understanding. You have an ear to listen when he needs to talk to someone other than his parents. You were Lindsay’s confident, and you would set her straight when needed. You are a mom and I love you dearly.
Happy Mother’s Day to every mother out there. I hope your day has been full of love and honor.
If for some reason you don’t have a relationship with your mom please take steps to repair want has been broken before it is to late.
