Happy Mother's Day!

Bonne Fête des Mères! 


Ysterday, I askd on my facebook what your mama taut you. 

Heers some of the ansrs.

Bianca ✫  she (and my cousin) taught me how to ride a bike :)

Lisa  Family relationships, both blood family and chosen family, should always be nurtured.

Nancy  Happiness is a choice

Rafael  put my pants on _before_ running outside.

Sara Luptowski BAHAHAHAHA raf hope tthats a reglr thng yuo rmbr. othrwise, a mentl pic.....

Josie Groper To use a toilet... ;)

Crystal  This too shall pass! God what great words of wisdom even though they were borrowed. She was so right. Whatever was a crisis at one point and time in life often seems ridiculous and trivial at another point and time. All but one that is... :(

Nancy  let's see....she also told me the old "why buy the cow if you're giving the milk for free" line and "there's nothing uglier than a drunk woman" and "no matter how pretty you are, if you sound stupid, you look stupid".

Pleez share on this lovly day.

my favrit from Erma Bombeck

When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into his sixth day of “overtime” when an angel appeared and said, “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.”
And the Lord said, “Have you read the specs on this order?
  • She has to be completely washable, but not plastic;
  • Have 180 movable parts... all replaceable;
  • Run on black coffee and leftovers;
  • Have a lap that disappears when she stands up;
  • A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair;
  • And six pairs of hands.”
The angel shook her head slowly and said, “Six pairs of hands... no way.”
“It’s not the hands that are causing me problems,” said the Lord. “It’s the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have.”
“That’s on the standard model?” asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. “One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, ’What are you kids doing in there?’ when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn’t but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say, ’I understand and I love you’ without so much as uttering a word.”
“Lord,” said the angel, touching His sleeve gently, “Go to bed. Tomorrow...”
“I can’t,” said the Lord, “I’m so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick... can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger... and can get a nine-year-old to stand under a shower.”
The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. “It’s too soft,” she sighed.
“But she’s tough!” said the Lord excitedly. “You cannot imagine what this mother can do or endure.”
“Can it think?”
“Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise,” said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek. “There’s a leak,” she pronounced. “I told You You were trying to push too much into this model.”
“It’s not a leak,” said the Lord. “It’s a tear.”
“What’s it for?”
“It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride.”
“You are a genius,” said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. “I didn’t put it there,” He said.
