Stepping up to the Plate on Mother’s Day

6 May

Mother’s Day is almost here.  Before you run out to Walmart, and buy the first thing that catches your eye, let’s think about that precious woman in our life – the mother of our children.

She is the one who endured the unnatural and strange food cravings, losing that food to endless morning sickness, the swollen feet, the inability to see your feet, the sleepless nights, the low back pain, the endless trips to go to the bathroom, the weight gain, the permanent TV tray protruding from her belly.  Did I even mention the pain of delivery? Or the recovery?

Taken towards the end of the photo shoot, guess the cuteness was to much for her; She did it.  Maybe you are the one who listened to her early morning gagging, put up with a little complaining, and made late-night trips to Dairy Queen or the grocery store, but overall we got off really easy.

Yes, we know that she is not YOUR mother.  However, that doesn’t get you off the hook (especially if you are the father of younger children).

She stepped up to the plate, and delivered.  Here is a day to say thanks.  Here is the day to acknowledge her home run.

It is now your turn up at bat.

Make it special.  Make it personal.  Make it now.

Don’t wait.  Don’t forget.

Don’t strike out.

    Any good ideas? That is where I have trouble sometimes.
