Mother's Day

I remember all the years of teaching school and wondering if I should have the children do a project for Mother's Day. I did, of course, so the child could begin the process of feeling gratitude. I recently came across a Mother's Day gift I made in grade school for my mother. I found it when I was going through her things. It is now priceless as my mother suffers from Alzheimer's and has risen to another plane. I hope all mothers get lots of mementos from their little ones this week. Perhaps they will save them and end up giving them back at some future day. I'm happy my mother saved mine as a reminder of her love.

Your mother cared deeply for you without you even knowing the extent of her love. It is great to have those items now and to recall those memories. The best thing my mom gave me was my hospitol bracelet. It was the original letter beads. I treasure them because she was 16 years old when she had me. She must have cared more than she was able to express during my growing up years.
