Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

And I mean to everyone, of course, not just the moms out there. I want everyone to have a happy day – that just happens to be Mother’s Day. Now for the moms, I wish you an extra special, warm embrace of love and gratitude for your efforts through the terrible twos, the still terrible threes, sometimes terrible fours, the teenage years, and then those heart wrenching moments of letting them become adults. 

I heard a saying once, children are a headache when they’re little and a heartache when they’re big. Be that as it may, children are the best blessing I have ever experienced. After all, they gave me my grandchildren! Just kidding, well, mostly just kidding. I do love those grandkids.

So, I thought I would give you all some great sayings to start or end your day with. Mine is going to end with my family gathered around my son-in-law’s famous, awesome lasagna, so I know what a fine day I am going to have. I hope you have one just as wonderful. Love to you all.

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of love, compassion and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love. Stevie Wonder

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. Abraham Lincoln

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Theodore Hesburgh

and one funny one to end on:

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? Milton Berle
