Mother's Day

~Mother's Day 2010.

~Mother, Mom, mommy, mum, mumsy...whatever you call her, she's the same. She's the woman who gave you life here on earth. Some mothers are nearly perfect specimens and reflect beautifully on the name. Some fall short, leaving tattered remnants of themselves buried deep within their offspring. A mother's influence on her child impacts that life more strongly than any other. The bond is deep. The ties that bind are strong. There is no other like it.
~Dads play a stronger role these days in their children's upbringing. That's a good thing. But no one can fill the shoes of a mom. No one can feel their child's pain or burst with pride at their child's success like Mom. Empathy is what separates Moms from all others. When you can feel what another human being feels as if it is happening to yourself, then you know what it is to be a Mom.

~God bless Moms on this Mother's Day.

  3. You are a genius, your writing is simultaneously eloquent and guttural, if that makes any sense... And in my opinion, you are the "perfect specimen" mother! Happy mother's day...

    Nicely stated Joanne! As the Dad of three healthy, beautiful daughters, I often feel I appreciate their Mother more than they do. Not only is she the love of my life, she is a phenomenal mother to our children, which I appreciate more than words can express.
    Have a wonderful Mother's Day and enjoy the beautiful family you raised!

  6. Well Ollie...You've done it again. You managed to knock me right off my feet with your Mother's Day tribute. You are a gifted writer, Joanne. Happy Mother's Day to an extremely talented woman.
    Love Maureen

I love hearing from you, but due to a large number of spam comments recently, I am now monitoring comments before publishing them. The Internet is a weird place sometimes!
