Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all you empty nest mommies out there. Even though your nest may now be empty, you’re still a mother at heart! And as a lady at church used to say, even if you yourself never had any kids, you did have a mother, so happy mother’s day from that direction.

Although my kids aren’t in the same state as I am, I’m sure we’ll talk today and my mother isn’t in my state either, but we too will talk. What would we do without those trusty telephones? I don’t know how the pioneers did it, leaving everything behind and taking off out west, probably never seeing their families again, maybe only a letter once or twice a year.

Luckily we don’t have to worry about that today, we have telephones, videophones, email, texting, and even the old time snail mail to keep in touch with far-away relatives.

So have a Happy Mother’s Day please!
