Happy Mothers' Day

Today is Mothers' Day, and I just want to take this opportunity to wish my mother and my wife's mother a happy day.

Unfortunately, there is a tinge of sadness to this day, because it's the first Mothers' Day since my grandmother died last fall; Mothers' Days just won't be the same.

First mom's day since my grandmother died, as well. I know what you mean.

Anyone want to write about why gran'mas (and gran'pas) are so important to us all? My impression is that usually they represent a different era when "life then seemed better". Also, they seem to be more cozy and tolerant to us than our parents. ..Maurice.

I think for a lot of kids like me with two working parents, grandparents can become kind of surrogate parents. I spent most of my afterschool hours at my grandparents' house as a young'n, and I learned a lot from them.

My daughter is the splitting image of my mother. The only real difference is that she has my father's freckles and my husband's height (since I am height challenged... she will be taller than me by fall when she enters 6th grade).

My most vivid memories of my mother was reading next to her on my parent's big bed. My mom did not watch TV... she read books. She used to take me to libraries... and introduced me and my brother to lots of books. We always got books at Christmas and birthdays.

This past week my daughter was on a team that won a city-wide reading contest. She was also on the team that won last year.

I think my mother would have been delighted. She died in an airplane accident when I was in the 5th grade... the same grade and age my daughter is now.
