Honor Mom on Mother’s Day or any day of the year with throw pillows that have a text message that says I love and respect you! After all, it is Mom that usually settles the kids’ squabbles, balances the checkbook and enforces bedtime.
I remember when my brother out grew Mom’s height by the time he was 13, at which time he believed he was exempt from mowing the lawn. My Mom would stand tall with one hand on her hip and the other holding a broom. She never said it, but we knew that look meant, “DO IT or I will knock your block off”. I actually never saw my mom raise a hand but she would poke the air with “that finger” like she was dialing God on a touch tone phone. And when MOM finished a sentence with “… and that’s a Holy Promise” we knew that was calling on the ultimate enforcer.
My Mom is such an angel and to this day is a pillow of strength, oops, that’s a pillar of strength and encouragement. On her fridge, she has a remnant of a greeting card… “Always Have a Dream” and daily, she inspires me, my kids and my grand kids.
Yes… Mom always makes me feel special and so does my dear husband. Every morning and evening is signaled with a kiss and an “I love you”
Like my Mom, my husband is a VERY smart man! He comes home from work and there I am at my sewing machine in my pajama bottoms, my old, gray, threadbare, sweater and with my ponytail sticking out like a paintbrush and he says…
Or when I’m crabby, he lies and tells me this…
Or, when I pay more attention to my laptop than to him he says…
A few weeks ago, my son called me to ask how to cook a turkey. Hysterical!!! I can cut baseboards, prune a hedge, build a fence but I cannot cook a turkey so I said…
I wish I could be more like my Mom. She ‘s an amazing gardener and in the summer, traffic always slows down in front of her house so that people can have a longer look at her colorful, prize winning, gardens.
Mom is always so friendly too. At church she is generous with hugs for the aged and the lonesome. Mom just opens her arms and her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren run to her for a big bear hug. My mom’s hugs always make the world right and bright again.
Mom is kind and friendly and loves all of God’s creatures….
I’m trying to adopt Mom’s loving attitude but I often see the neighbors cat as …
I actually love pets… but I have rules. No cats or dogs were allowed on the couch. With a drapery / pillow business we no longer have pets though.
My Mom has the patience of a saint. I just don’t know how she does it. She shoulders our tears, listens to our whining and prays to God on our behalf. Yet some days, all it takes is one goofy message from X (everyone knows at least one annoying person) and I’m on the edge of p*ssy mad for the rest of the day.
Mom is always so cheerful and happy in spite of what might be painful to her.
Every day, but especially on Mother’s Day, I realize the infinite supply of unconditional love Mom has for all of her children.
On Mother’s Day remember to tell your Mom, or your wife, how much you love her. Say it with pillows or with flowers (pillows last longer)… or any way that you can. Make Mother’s Day all about Mom. Hugs to all the Moms reading this.
