Topic: Mother's Day is coming up!
I just wanted to start a topic about Mother's Day. There are so many good moms out there in the world that I think it is so important to have a day to recognize them. I know this is an emotional topic, especially for those caretakers here who have lost their Mother's to CCA. I hope that this will be a day of good memories for you to relive all of those great times. Becoming a parent myself (a 2.5 year old and a 6 month old) has helped me very much to appreciate the sacrifices that parents make. Both of my parents are great people. They continue to help my wife and I out with our crazy situation on an almost daily basis. I love you, Mom. And I love you too, Dad.
Moving on to my wife - wow what an amazing woman. She is such a dedicated mother I am overjoyed that our kids have her in their lives. Sometimes I wish she could spend less time with the kids and more with me, but that is just because the age of our kids requires so much attention which she freely gives. She doesn't get much, if any, time to herself and is one of the most selfless people I know. I want to do something very special for her and for my Mom this Mother's Day but I'm striking out so far. Perhaps a hand written note for each of them is the way to go. Since this is quite possibly the last Mother's Day that I will be here for, I want to make sure that both of them know how much I appreciate them. If anyone has some ideas, please post them!
Thank God for Mothers and wives. Even when our time with them is cut short, the precious time that we do have with them is beyond measure. I am also praying for all of you caretakers here who have lost your Mothers. It isn't my intention to cause anyone grief, rather it is to relive all of those good times and to honor our mothers and wives.
