Happy Mother's Day

Me.... and my 82 year old Mom... Mary

real Mothers don't eat quiche;

they don't have time to make it.

real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils

are probably in the sandbox.

real Mothers know that dried play dough

doesn't come out of carpets.

real Mothers don't want to know what

the vacum just sucked up...

real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me, Lord?'

and get their answer when a little voice says,

'Because I love You best.'

real Mothers know that a child's growth

is not measured by the height or years or grade...

it is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.......

The Images of Mother:

4 Yearsof Age- My Mommy can do Anything!

8 years of Age- My Mom knows alot! A whole Lot!

12 Years of Age- My Mother? She wouldn't have a Clue.

14 years of Age- My Mother? She so five minutes ago.

18 years of age- That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 years of age- Well, she might know just a litttle bit about it.

35 years of age- Before we decide, let's go get Mom's opinion.

45 years of age- Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 years of age- Wish I could talk it over with Mom..(soo true!)

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be from in her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart,

the place where love resides.

But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she

shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Happy Mother's Day to all You Mothers out There!
ps... I love you best..Mom!
