Happy Mother's Day to All

Mother's Day, a day set aside to honor mothers, and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring.
Today, take time to thank your mom for her influence on your life's journey.
If you are a motherless daughter today there are some ways to keep your mother's memory alive.

  • Share stories and anecdotes about your mother.
  • Wear your mother's favorite color -- piece of clothing, nail polish, etc.
  • Remember your mother's best advice and wisest sayings, follow and share.
  • Prepare your mother's favorite recipes, and keep her in your head and your heart as you are making the dishes and serving them.
  • Write something -- a poem, a song, a recollection -- about your mother.
  • Perform an act of kindness to honor your mother.
  • Give to a charity in memory of your mother.
My mother enjoyed cooking and trying out new recipes. With eight of us she got in lots of practice. She'd try out some of her recipes in advance for upcoming bridge groups. And then there was hardly a piece of chocolate she didn't like particularly Dove Bars.  A stash could always be found in her freezer.
