Mother’s Day Blessing

Mother’s Day Blessing
Just as God gives to each rose
A gentle touch of dew
And gives unto each evening sky
The lovely sunset’s hue

So may HE give to you
From His enduring love
Great happiness and hearts’ content
And blessings from above.

Happy Mother’s Day!I pray that you know how special you are. Whether your babies are near or far, Whether they come see or call or pretend you are not there…because of you-they are…HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO THE MOTHERS AND GRANDMOTHERS

Erma Bombeck Quotes

Spend at least one Mother’s Day with your respective mothers before you decide on marriage. If a man gives his mother a gift certificate for a flu shot, dump him.
– Erma Bombeck

My kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out until all the groceries are unloaded from the car.
– Erma Bombeck

Making coffee has become the great compromise of the decade. It’s the only thing “real” men do that doesn’t seem to threaten their masculinity. To women, it’s on the same domestic entry level as putting the spring back into the toilet-tissue holder or taking a chicken out of the freezer to thaw.
– Erma Bombeck

I don’t know why no one ever thought to paste a label on the toilet-tissue spindle giving 1-2-3 directions for replacing the tissue on it. Then everyone in the house would know what Mama knows.
– Erma Bombeck

Giving birth is little more than a set of muscular contractions granting passage of a child. Then the mother is born.

Erma Bombeck Quotes

Housework is a treadmill from futility to oblivion with stop offs at tedium and counter productivity.
– Erma Bombeck

Mothers have to remember what food each child likes or dislikes, which one is allergic to penicillin and hamster fur, who gets carsick and who isn’t kidding when he stands outside the bathroom door and tells you what’s going to happen if he doesn’t get in right away. It’s tough. If they all have the same hair color they tend to run together.

Onion rings in the car cushions do not improve with time.

Love Quotes – Famous Quotes – Quotes – Pain Quotes

“When I was little I asked my mom why we have pain. Like, what’s it for?  She said it’s so we don’t stand around with our hands on a hot stove. She said it’s to teach us. But she said by the time the pain kicks in, it’s pretty much too late, and that’s what parents are here for. And that’s what she’s here for. To teach me. So I don’t touch the hot stove in the first place.

Sometimes I think my mom has that condition, too. Only on the inside where nobody sees it but me… Except, I know she hurts. But she still has her hand on that hot stove. On the inside, I mean. And I don’t think they make helmets or pads for stuff like that.
 
I wish I could teach her.”
– from the novel, “Pay It Forward”, by Catherine Ryan Hyde, spoken by the 13 year old young male character that was commenting on his mother’s inability to let anyone truly love her.

Since I still have my Mom's Mother's Day card sitting on the seat of my car, I'll consider this the perfect guilt trip, the best gift a Mother could give.
