SansFin

Now that Mother's Day is drawing to a close, what special thing did you do for her today?

This has been a test of your panic response. It is only a test. Grades are confidential.

SansFin, baby, I was only panicked (sp?) on your behalf. I thought, "How could such an aware and alert lady such as SansFin have the date for Mother's Day wrong?"

I even entertained the idea that it might be a cultural thing, since for some reason I doubt they have Mother's Day in the Eastern European land from whence you grew up. (or maybe they do?)

 

So I obligingly clicked your thread to gently explain that you were slightly mistaken as to the calendar timing of the day acknowledging the value of one's female parent, only to find that you were jesting. "Of course !" thought I. "The acumen of SansFin's fine cerebral cortex would not have made such an error."

 

Of course the whole thing is simply to make money for the greeting card, flower, and restaurant businesses.

Apparently the woman who originally thought up the idea of Mother's Day was appalled when she realized that it was becoming such a commercial occasion. What touching naivete.

We have had Mother's Day in Ukraine for perhaps fifteen years. Its adoption was a sign of acceptance of Western commercialism. Children and young mothers embraced it eagerly.

 

We celebrate International Women's Day in March. It is for all women. It is an official holiday with stores and factories closing. Men are expected to give flowers to each and every woman in his life.

I'll be doing something for my wife on the 10th, but since she's really a STEP mother, and has no children of her own, I usually tell her it was wrong to NOT have a "Step Mother's Day".

 

And, since my EX is dead, my daughter's usually send my wife a card or bring flowers to her if possible( due to their personal schedules, plus, neither of THEM are mothers, either).

 

MY Mother passed 16 years ago, but each Mother's Day since, I look skyward and say a soft, simple "LOVE ya, Mom!"

 

But then, I do it often THROUGHOUT the year.

My mom died in 1993, but if she were here today I would have made her a dinner. She would have preferred that, since there is no smoking in restaurants today. Every Sunday she made dinner and we all gathered at her home. I also would have went over to wash her hair. She loved that. It was easier for me to do it and she appreciated it.

I also would have made sure she had a bouquet of Lilacs. Of all the flowers, they were her favorite. I would love to be able to do those small things for her. Whenever asked what she wanted, of course she said "nothing, save your money."

 

To all Mothers, have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Gave my good wife (the mother of my children) a card and a large box of candy.  My wife looked at the box like a starving vampire looking at fresh warm blood.

My mom died the day after Mother's Day five years ago so it's a little bittersweet for me.

 

I was wished a happy Mother's Day when I went to the store earlier today but my only child is of the canine variety. My niece sent me a card. My sister (her mom) died in 1986 and she's now in her late 40's but I try to provide unwanted advice on occasion. We're the only two left in my immediate family, so holidays don't mean too much to me anymore.

 

Aren't I just a bundle of joy?

Thank You Mockingbird. Your post is one of the sweetest I've read on the bds. in a very long time. You're a credit to your Mom  :)

This may be belated, and for that, I apologize!

 

So...here goes----

 

Happy Mother's Day to all on the boards who qualify!  :)

Well, you sound like fun to me.  :)  As a fellow pet parent, the cats gave me quite the gift tonight--a small bit of room on the couch!
