Since this is Mothers Day in the US I thought it would be fun to post some short quotes, poems or thoughts to commemorate the day. I'll start with a couple and feel free to add on your own.

And to all mothers...where would we be without you???? No where!! smilewinkgrin

For the Mom Who Does Everything (from Squidoo)

Mom, I know you do the dishes
And I know you cook the food
I know you scrub down all the floors
Even when you're in a bad mood.

And every night you walk the dog
While I'm watching all my shows
On Thursday's you take out the trash
And every spring you wash the windows.

Mom, I know you're sad I'll go someday
And leave you all alone
But right now I'm only 35
So what other place could I call home?

and finally~~

Dear Lord

Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day
With little time to stop and pray
For life's been anything but calm
Since You called on me to be a mom

Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose

Fitting lids on bottled bugs
Wiping tears and giving hugs
A stack of last weeks mail to read
So where's the quiet time I need?

Yet when I steal a minute, Lord
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I see then, in my small one's face

That you have blessed me
All the while
And I stop to kiss
That precious smile

LOL!

I always remember the old saying "if you step on a crack, you will break you're mothers back!"

So I carefully avoided the cracks in the sidewalk when walking to school every morning! Actually to this day, I avoid cracks in the sidewalk because of this old saying.
