A Mother's Day
Written Sunday 05/08/05 by Joseph Rossini

Today is Motherís Day and an opportune time to discuss these ďWonderful LadiesĒ in our lives. I have been a witness to watching unselfish and tireless Moms give and sacrifice unconditionally for their children during their entire lifetime, as they display the incredible will and strength that human beings possess. As I see it, the whole process of motherhood is quite a miraculous journey.

The miracle begins as our Maker instills in little girls the desire to be a mother. As children grow up, they witness how difficult this payless, 24/7 job can be. They also know that their Mom is never off duty from nurturing and fulfilling the endless needs of their children. They watch as Mom tirelessly juggles and struggles with her endless responsibilities, yet she is always on call to muster up that extra burst of energy it takes to do one more thing. Yes, little girls watch how difficult it is to be a Mom, yet they still have the desire to be one, themselves.

Mothers are truly special ladies. They are so focused on the well being of their children, regardless of their age, educational background, or financial status. Thereís very little training and no licensing process in order to become a proficient Mother. Yet somehow they know exactly what needs to be done at all times. They are caring and patient and are masters of perseverance. They will overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of keeping their children fed and comfortable. And without any medical training, they somehow know how to find remedies to the cuts, bruises, burns and endless minor ailments that kids are prone to endure.

During my own lifetime I have been extremely fortunate to have lived with two incredible Moms. Iím referring to my own Dear Mother and my Wonderful Wife. Now these are two really special ladies and Moms. Although they hail from totally different generations as well as different parts of the world, they were very similar when it came to being great mothers. They focused on their childrenís needs, with the same intensity of a high powered laser beam. They both shared the special qualities of ďthe patience of a SaintĒ when it came to their children. They were on call 24/7, nurturing and caring Ė regardless of how tired they might have been themselves. In essence, I would venture to say that these special ladies would do virtually anything, at any time, at any place for their children Ė during their entire lifetimeÖ..PERIOD! Now thatís what I call complete devotion!

Along with my Mom and my wife, I have also witnessed the same wonderful motherly instincts in my Dear Mother-in-law, my Sister and my Wifeís Sisters. This special relationship between mothers and their children is unlike any other relationship in humans or in the entire animal kingdom. Itís difficult to explain the absolute devotion that mothers have for their children. But we all know how SPECIAL this relationship can be.

So is it fitting that we only set aside one day a year, to honor our Moms? Doesnít this tireless group of women who have devoted a lifetime of days to their children deserve a little more recognition? While we all know that they absolutely do, donít miss the opportunity to make your Mom feel special on Motherís Day. While Motherís Day and Fatherís Day have become somewhat of a routine day of recognition, kids should take the opportunity to make these days very special. Because they are honoring two very special people who have touched their lives in very special ways.

Better yet, while itís nice to do something special on Motherís Day to honor this special lady in your life, why wait for this once a year event? In my opinion, Momís should be honored much more often with a special note or surprise phone call, just to let her know how much you care about her and how much you have appreciated all of her efforts. Keep your Mom informed of the special events in your life and let her know how much she has contributed to your well being throughout the years. Recall some fond stories and events that Mom is proud of and make her feel as special as she has made you feel throughout your lifetime. Show your appreciation with a surprise dinner or take her out to the theater. Send her on a special cruise or take her to your house for a few days and invest some quality time with your Mom. These are just a few ways to REALLY make her feel special!

By the way, I tried all of the suggestions I made above with my Mom when she was alive. And I feel great about doing so now. Those surprise efforts I made through the years are now priceless memories to enjoy. Donít miss out on any opportunity to make this wonderful lady in your life feel REALLY GREAT! To all the Motherís that read this article today Ė I wish you a HAPPY MOTHERíS DAY. You are truly a SPECIAL LADY.
