Although they take care of us 365 days of the year and we should thank them every day of the year for it, today is the designated annual celebration for mothers the world over.
So please do something nice for the mothers close to you today. Don't think that a card or some chocolate is sufficient. The Notorious AMJ makes it abundantly clear that paper and candy doesn't get the job done.
A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother—and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment.
If you are fortunate enough to have your mom around, please let her know exactly how appreciative you are that for all that she does. If your mom isn't with you today, tell another mother what a great job she's doing.
To all the ladies in the BRB community who have dealt with birthing and/or raising a child, know that this corner of the world recognizes you for all that you have done and continue to do. Happy Mother's Day to you. If you're up to it, share your favorite memories about your sainted mother in the Comments below.
