Happy Mother’s Day

Take time to ex­press your thanks for the love, car­ing, sup­port, or for her just be­ing there for you. The sec­ond Sun­day in May, May 8, is Mother’s Day. She is the wo­man who had some re­spon­si­bil­ity for your life. She is the per­son who al­ways had love for you no mat­ter what the sit­u­a­tion was. She had love and car­ing for you as you grew, pro­vid­ing med­i­cal at­ten­tion as well as hav­ing a smile on her face even when she was dis­ap­pointed in what you did or did not do, what you said, and for the ex­cuses you made to get out of trou­ble. Yes, moth­ers, the fe­male per­son in your fam­ily. And, don’t for­get those gifts she gave you, some­times ne­glect­ing to get things that she needed to make sure you had clothes, shoes, lunches, and sev­eral other things. And there are some other fe­males that were in the role of mother — grand­moth­ers, god­moth­ers, aunts, older sis­ters, adopted moth­ers and per­haps oth­ers who made a dif­fer­ence in your life. To moth­ers every­where, from me, a mother who has been ac­tive for many years, Happy Mother’s Day.
