Happy Mothers Day

As far back as the 1600s, there was a day called "Mothering Sunday" when servants in England were given the day off to spend with their Mothers. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May to be a nationally observed "Mother's Day" in the United States. Throughout the world their are many countries that honor Mothers on similar days,

Tradition holds that Mothers Day is a day for people to express their appreciation for the things their Mothers have done for them. Carnations are traditionally given to Mothers, as they symbolize sweetness and endurance.

"Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother."

-- Lin Yutang

Mother is another word for Love!!


What is a Mother?

A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,

To love us, whatever we do,

With a warm understanding and infinite patience

And wonderful gentleness, too.

How often a mother means swift reassurance

In soothing our small, childish fears,

How tenderly mothers watch over their children

And treasure them all through the years!

The heart of a mother is full of forgiveness

For any mistake, big or small,

And generous always in helping her family,

Whose needs she has placed above all.

A mother can utter a word of compassion

And make all our cares fall away,

She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter

And make life delightful and gay.

A mother possesses incredible wisdom

And wonderful insight and skill -

In each human heart is that one special corner

Which only a mother can fill!

Katherine Nelson Davis

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

--Author Unknown

"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."

-- Jewish proverb

A mother understands what a child does not say.

Happy Mothers Day to My Mom and My Mother in Law Pattie at Pattie's Porch

We Love you !!!!!!

Mother Hood!!!

Time is running our for my friend. We are sitting at lunch when she
   casually mentions that she and her husband are thinking of "starting a
   family". What she means is that her biological clock is ticking and has
   begun its final countdown
       "We're taking a survey," she says, half joking. "Do you think I should
   have a baby?"    
       "It will change your life," I say carefully, keeping my tone neutral
       "I know," she says, "no more sleeping in on the weekend, no more
   spontaneous vacations..." 
       But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my friend, trying to
   decide what to tell her. I want her to know what she will never learn in
   childbirth classes. I want to tell her that the physical wounds of
   childbearing heal, but that becoming a mother will leave her with an
   emotional wound so raw that she will be forever vulnerable.   
       I consider warning her that she will never read a newspaper again
   without asking "What if that had been MY child?" That every plane crash,
   every fire will haunt her. That when she sees pictures of starving children,
   she will wonder if anything could be worse than watching your child die.  
       I look at her carefully manicured nails and stylish suit and think
   that no matter how sophisticated she is, becoming a mother will reduce
   her to the primitive level of a bear protecting her cub. That an urgent call of
   "Mom!" will cause her to drop a soufflé or her best crystal without a
moment's hesitation. 

       I feel I should warn her that no matter how many years she has
   invested in her career, she will be professionally derailed by motherhood.
   She might arrange for child care, but one day she will be going into an
   important business meeting and she will think about her baby's sweet smell.
   She will have to use every ounce of her discipline to keep from running home,
   just to make sure her baby is all right.

       I want my friend to know that everyday decisions will no longer be
   routine. That a five year old boy's desire to go to the men's room rather
   than the women's at McDonalds will become a major dilemma. That right
   there, in the midst of clattering trays and screaming children, issues of
   independence and gender identity will be weighed against the prospect
   that a child molester may be lurking in that restroom. However decisive
   she may be at the office, she will second-guess herself constantly as a  mother.

       Looking at my attractive friend, I want to assure her that eventually
   she will shed the lbs of pregnancy, but she will never feel the same about
   herself. That her life, now so important, will be of less value to her
   once she has a child. That she would give it up in a moment to save her
   offspring, but will also begin to hope for more years - not to accomplish her
   own dreams, but to watch her child accomplish theirs. I want her to know that
   a cesarean scar or shiny stretch marks will become badges of honor.
       My friend's relationship with her husband will change, but not in the
   ways she thinks. I wish she could understand how much more you can love a
   man who is always careful to powder the baby or never hesitates to play with
   his child. I think she should know that she will fall in love with him again
   for reasons she would now find very unromantic.
       I wish my friend could sense the bond she'll feel with women
   throughout history who have tried desperately to stop war and prejudice
   and drunk driving. I hope she will understand why I can think rationally
   about most issues, but become temporarily insane when I discuss the
   threat of nuclear war to my children's future.
       I want to describe to my friend the exhilaration of seeing your child
   learn to ride a bike. I want to capture for her the belly laugh of a baby
   who is touching the soft fur of a dog or cat for the first time. I want her
   to taste the joy that is so real, it actually hurts.
       My friend's quizzical look makes me realize that tears have fomed in
   my eyes.
       "You'll never regret it," I say finally. Then I reach across the
   table, squeeze my friend's hand, and offer a silent prayer for her, and forme,
   and for all of the mere mortal women who stumble their way into this most
  wonderful of callings.
the blessed gift of God and that of being a Mother
