Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mohter's Day
Three simple little words that hold so much meaning.
Mother's are many times not given the credit they deserve.
Mother's give to their families ahead of their own needs. Their deeds many times go unnoticed and unappreciated. Though we don't notice when our laundry is done, our house is clean and our meals are not cooked for us, we do notice when these things are not done.
Why is it that we cannot appreciate all that is done for us?
A friend I went to high school with just recently lost her mother to cancer. Sitting at the funeral hearing all the "special" memories of her mother that she and her siblings had, was definitely eye opening.
However, when the time for memories comes, it is often too late.
I hope that each and everyone who has a living Mother, Mom, Ma, Mum, (whatever you like to call her) takes the time to say "Thank you for ..........................................". You fill in the blank.
Here are some of my thank you's:
Thank you Mom for showing me how to quilt
Thank you for teaching me to give 110% even if it's not appreciated
Thank you for teaching me to do the something, not for the glory of the deed, but just because it's the right thing to do.
Thank you for teaching me to cook, keep a clean house (well, almost a clean house LOL)
Thank you for giving me the gift of loving others, giving me the gift of loving God
Thank you for all that you have done for me, my family and others who have touched our lives
Thank you Mom
