This coming Sunday is going to be Mother’s Day. Yes, my Mother is still alive – at 91 years of age!
My Mother always encouraged me; when I wanted long hair (many years ago), my Dad said “No” – but Mom always said “Only if you keep it clean!”.
Generally speaking, she knows who she is and where she is. We keep a newspaper on the kitchen table, to address the date. Our home has a strict schedule: gardener comes on Tuesday AM, trash goes out Thursday AM. We also have a cleaning lady that comes in (once a month) and my Mom likes to visit her hairdresser – she was a hairdresser, back in her working life!
So, if your Mother is still alive and walking around – take care of her this coming Sunday. If not, get your best stuff ready; chances are your Mom helped you at some point, so say “Thank you” in whatever way is possible.
