You Know You've Turned Into a Mom When...

     You find yourself humming the Barney song as you do the dishes.  You weep through the scene in Dumbo when his mom is taken away, not to mention what Bambi does to you.  You get soooo into crafts you contemplate writing a book called 101 Fun Crafts to do with Dryer Lint and Eggshells.  You spend a half hour searching for your sunglasses only to have your teenager say, "Mom, why don't you wear the ones you pushed up on your head?"

     You are out for a nice romantic meal with your husband, enjoying some real adult conversation, when suddenly you realize that you've reached over and started to cut up his steak!

The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.
Mark Twain, U.S. Author (1835-1910)

        After losing another tooth, young-old Timmy became more curious about the mysterious tooth fairy.  Finally putting two and two together, he came right out and asked his mother, "Mom, are you the tooth fairy?"
         Assuming he was old enough to hear the truth, she replied, "Yes Timmy, I am."
         Timmy seemed to take this news quite well.
         But as he headed for the door, he slowly turned back toward his mother with a curious look on his face and said, "Wait a minute mom. How do you get into the other kids' houses?"

     One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?"
          Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

     The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

As the Dalai Lama says: "I SEE ALL the different religious traditions as paths for the development of inner peace, which is the true foundation of world peace...What needs detailed discussion is how we can ensure that the different religions of the world can become powerful allies of peace."
I will always love and appreciate my Mom; whether in body or spirit

A Good (But Sad)

Mother's Day Story


     After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie.  She said, "I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you."
     The other woman my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it difficult to visit her often.
     I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.  "What's wrong, are you well," she asked.  My mother suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.
     "I thought it would be pleasant to spend some time with you," I responded.  "Just the two of us."
She thought about it for a moment, and said, "I would like that very much."
     As I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous.  When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date.  She waited in the door with her coat on.  She had curled her hair and wore the dress she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary.
Her face was as radiant as an angel's, "I told my friends I was going out with my son, and they were impressed," she said, as she got into the car.       "They can't wait to hear about our meeting."
     We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy.  My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady.
     After we sat down, I read the menu.  Her eyes could only read large print.  Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me.  A nostalgic smile was on her lips.  "It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small," she said.
      "Then it's time you relax and let me return the favor," I responded.  During dinner, we had agreeable conversation, nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other's life.  We talked so much we missed the movie.
      At her house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you."  I agreed.
     "How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home.  "Very nice.  Much more than I could have imagined," I answered.
     A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack.  It happened so suddenly that I didn't have a chance to do anything for her.
Some time later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from where we had dined.  An attached note said:  "I paid this bill in advance.  I wasn't sure I could be there; so I paid for two plates - one for you one for your wife.  You'll never know what the night meant for me.  I love you, son."
