Mother's Day

"Mother's love is the fuel that enables a normal human being
to do the impossible
." ~Marion C. Garretty

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.." ~Washington Irving

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother."
~Abraham Lincoln


HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all mothers out there!
I hope you hug your mothers real tight today and show how much you love her.

Happy Mothers' Day
It takes a Mother's Love
to make a house a home,
A place to be remembered,
no matter where we roam.

It takes a Mother's Patience,
to bring a child up right,
And her Courage and her Cheerfulness
to make a dark day bright.

It takes a Mother's Thoughtfulness
to mend the heart's deep "hurts,"
And her Skill and her Endurance
to mend little socks and shirts.

It takes a Mother's Kindness
to forgive us when we err,
To sympathize in trouble
and bow her head in prayer.

It takes a Mother's Wisdom
to recognize our needs
And to give us reassurance
by her loving words and deeds.

It takes a Mother's Endless Faith,
her Confidence and Trust
To guide us through the pitfalls
of selfishness and lust.

And that is why in all this world
there could not be another
Who could fulfil God's purpose
as completely as a MOTHER!

A lovely and poignant poem by Helen Steiner Rice.

Happy Mothers' Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all your moms too, Ipanema, Bayi, Duke, and Sachi. No, Sachi. I was cuter when I was that young. *LOL*

Next to God, a mother is the best bestfriend you can have down here. :)

I assume this is a picture of your mom. I can see the resemblance sa eyes and mouth. Mothers are worthy of our love and attention everyday for everything they have done for us. I think I am being remiss with my duties as a son lately.
