5/13/18 Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 13, 2018

"My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune."

"Nothing is really lost till Mom can't find it."

"Mamas, you may not be perfect, but you ARE enough...for your kids, for your husband, for your family."

There was a Texas oil tycoon who was watching his largest oil well going up in flames. He called in the best fire fighting equipment money could buy but there was no way they could get close enough to the intense flames to reach them with their water hose. Finally, out of desperation, he called the local volunteer fire department. They chugged up in their 1946 truck and passed every one of the state of the art rigs and headed toward the center of the fire. They stopped, jumped out, sprayed each other down with water, and then proceeded to put out the fire. When they were finally finished, the millionaire was so impressed with the crew's dedication and bravery, he awarded the chief with a check for $10,000. Later, a reporter asked the chief what he was going to do with the money. The chief replied, "Well, the first thing we're going to do is fix those lousy brakes!!"

Happy Mother's Day to all kinds of Moms. May you always feel the love you give so freely returned to you. It's also Children of Fallen Patriots Day, Crouton Day, Frog Jumping Day (maybe Mom would like to go), Hummus Day, Mothers at the Wall Day (in honor of mothers with children lost during the Vietnam War), Top Gun Day (remember that movie), and Leprechaun Day.

Yesterday was Limerick Day and VICKICHICKI123 posted this in the comments:

There was a women on Spark,
Everyday she took a walk in the park,
She pondered her weight,
Increased her gait,
And now she has hit her mark.

Brava, Vicki!
