Mother's Day Tribute


This is my first Mother's Day without having a living mom.
While I am still mourning the loss of my mom in January of this year, naturally, I can't help but remorse her loss even more on this day. Regardless, I want to sincerely thank her and all the mom's out there, who selflessly give so much of their heart to provide love, comfort and care to their child(ren) daily.&
While it's obvious that none of us would have likely ever biologically existed without having had a mom, even if they could, this world would be a much colder and more harsh place, if never having known a mom. My mom was very special to me and no doubt yours is/was too to you. If you are lucky enough to still have a living mom, please treat her with love and kindness, while you still have the opportunity to do so.

Regardless, kindly help me celebrate her life the JimNastics way... with humor.
I hope you enjoy the Mother's Dictionary of Meanings;

Dumbwaiter: One who asks if the kids would care to order dessert.

Feedback: The inevitable result when the baby doesn't appreciate the strained carrots.

Full Name: What you call your child when you're mad at him/her.

Grandparents: The people who think your children are wonderful even though they're sure you're not raising them right.

Hearsay: What toddlers do when anyone mutters a dirty word, or anything inappropriate.

Independent: How we want our children to be for as long as they do everything we say.

Puddle: A small body of water that draws other small bodies wearing dry shoes into it.

Show Off: A child who is more talented than yours.

Sterilize: What you do to your first baby's pacifier by boiling it, and to your last baby's pacifier by blowing on it and wiping it with saliva.

Top Bunk: Where you should never put a child wearing Superman jammies.

Two-Minute Warning: When the baby's face turns red and she begins to make those familiar-grunting noises.

Whodunit: Never any of the kids that live in your house.

What you wrote and created was beautiful. Your mother is smiling down upon you. I lost my mother also. I feel for your loss. I know that it is a difficult thing to go through. It does help with time. Plus, your writings, creating and great sense of humor all combined will all be a plus! I do understand. It is a hard day. I will keep you in my prayers.

Hi Jim,

I'm very sorry for your recent loss. I lost my Mother suddenly in 1991. She was just 62. It's a very difficult time of year for me. There are many difficult times, all include wonderful memories of life with her. And yes, she was and is very Special to me.

With time, the hurt doesn't cut as deep; however, the emptiness has never left me. The wishing she was still here to enjoy...

Your tribute was lovely and I'm sure your Mom is beaming with pride.

Thank you for sharing....
