Mom's Special Day


Happy Mother's Day

If it wasn't for you

I wouldn't be here

This is one of the most important of all holidays

No doubt in my mind

With my mother, grandmother, God mother all in heaven

This gives me time to appreciate them even more

Why stop there

Wish a happy wish to all mothers everywhere

They deserve to be recognized and appreciated

Anyone can buy some flowers,candy and a card

But not everyone can draw them

My picture was going to be included

It didn't come out to good

A six year old can draw better

At least I tried

I am drawing another picture hopefully this one will be nicer

I am sure your family will be by soon

While you wait I thought I would tell you in my own words what a mother is

Someone who made my life possible

So you may not be president of the Untied States

You do so much more

Held me when I was sick

Picked me up when I fell and by the way that was often

Loved me unconditionally

Even when I was bad

I made my mistakes and thought I knew it all

You watched over me and gave me time to learn

No matter how much it hurt

Giving me a chance to grow

My list is endless

I am sure I never got to say

So many times the sound of your voice made my day

It's never too late

Because I like the sound of that

I never will forget all the hugs and kisses

Our secret talks

Always saying please and thank you

I want you to have so much fun

Remember I am who I am today

Because of you

I am a better person

Thank you for all your advice and support

Love and friendship

You are in my heart

Shining through like the sun after a rain storm

I will always miss you

All I have to do

Is look around and you are there

Love you mom

Nellieanna I love the little things in life that make people happy.Outside all day cutting the grass and we put down grub ex to kill the grubs. Last year they had a party on my lawn and they didn't invite me. .You put it down with a spreader.and water. Then you wait and see if it works. Thank you for reading and sharing.

DDE Mothers are always busy doing what they have to. I think mothers do so much more because they love to. Thank you for reading and sharing.

How lovely of your wife to make a little cake for me and for my name being on it! Thank you! I seldom have cake but, by chance, my sweet neighbor across the alley brought me several slices of her birthday cake! So when I eat it, I'll also think of the cake with my name on it up there in your loving home!

I was up early again today for a service call for my home security system. The motion sensor was on the blink and it kept reminding me when I set the alarm or disarmed it, saying the motion sensor needed to be fixed. So I called the provider and the guy just fixed it. I feel so blessed to have all the electronics working nicely!

We're under a storm warning, but so far it's just dark, overcast and quite humid. But nothing can darken my happiness to have the glitches fixed!

A wonderful thought for all mothers.

Nellieanna I was preparing to send you letters by mail. Thinking if there is a problem there is always a solution. Even if it's only temporary until the problem is resolved. I love the computer but in the past I have had my own problems where I lost information and couldn't get on line. It was a real shot in the butt and it felt like the nurse gave me the biggest needle. The worst part of it she was still smiling and said I am not done. So I feel for you. Nice to see when on going computer issues get fixed. One of my greatest pleasures is when I have difficulties and then they are gone. I celebrate my new found love for everything and soon forget just days ago I felt like a monkey at the circus jumping through hoops. My wife made a little cake to cheer you up and it says Nellieanna. I wanted to say more but ran out of room. Then thinking your beautiful name says it all. A thoughtful way to let you know you are in our thoughts every day. It's not even seven o'clock here I went to bed early to get a jump on my day. Make it a funny day where we can laugh at all the good we see in life. Thank you for your support and encouragement.

I agree, Michael! Staying upbeat is the key to being joyous. Yessir!

I'm happy to report that my internet service provider sent techs today to find and fix the issues which have been preventing my access to my internet for awhile. They worked on everything from the telephone poll out back to replacing the actual modem inside! So - maybe I can start to get caught up now!

Gypsy Rose Lee I love the way we all have our stories and special moments. These bonds we carry through life. Thank you for reading and telling others to appreciate their moms while they can.

Wonderful tribute. Moms are certainly special and I always miss mine. I always say to those who still have moms - hug and kiss them everyday.

Nellieanna Life is funny in many ways. Everyone needs a good laugh. If we remember the things we have enjoyed our joy can continue. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Such a beautiful tribute to your mother, Michael. I'm sure the pictures you draw for her are much better than you think, but the fact is that your words here paint beautiful pictures!
