A Mothers Day Wish
Try to imagine what your mother went through to give you life. As a mother yourself, you can. For the rest of us, try passing a large kidney stone you'll learn.
Thanks, Mom. I'm so glad I can still tell you in person!
I would like to be able to just say what I have written about mothers in general and my mother specifically. Doing so being somewhat of a hurdle, I have taken this route for showing you how to get there.
My reason for doing so is quite simple: I think there are at least three such instances you might enjoy sharing this Mothers Day.
My mother will be 105 next October, and we try mightily to talk with each other by phone at least once each day. That method of contact, in addition to email, is occasioned by the fact that we live 2,300 miles away from each other and finances (my end) and health concerns (her end) keep personal visits to a too small minimum.
Mom has a love of poetry, though she writes hers when she is inspired and claims not to have been so inspired lately. I love poetry, too, and I seem to be making up for what she presently lacks...though I make no claim to accomplishing what she accomplishes when her inspiration triggers her writing.
Consequently, I express my feelings about my inspirational Mom quite often in a form resembling poetry.
Here are links to the three I believe you may want to share with someone special today:
I hope you will enjoy them.
