The tulips have dropped their last petals (as seen in photo above). They were lovely while they lasted. Mother's Day too was lovely while it lasted. Yes. Another lovely day. Does anyone know the history of Mother's Day? I could Google it and maybe I could find the right answer, but it's late and I'm tired. I've heard it said that it was an invention of Hallmark. They just wanted an occasion to sell more cards. This sounds quite likely, yet I'm not going to boycott the holiday even if its inception did have everything to do with commercialism. Why throw the baby out with the bathwater I say.
So, what do you think? An excuse to sit back and be waited on once a year. A chance to remind your own mother how much you appreciate her. A chance for your children to practice self sacrifice. An opportunity for husbands to remind themselves (and you) that they are capable of whipping up a little something in the kitchen.
Hurray for Mother's Day I say!
