Happy Mother's Day Mom...

When Mother’s Day comes around each year I think of my Mom and how she loved all celebrations, Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day and perhaps even April Fools Day, Ground Hog Day, and anything to celebrate. Mom just loved a good time.

Mom lived to be 95 and except for the 2 years I was in the Army, I think I was with her on almost every Mother’s Day.

Mom died in 1992 and is buried in our family plot where Roz and I will join her in a few years.

Even though Mom has been gone for over 20 years I think of her often and even have her picture in my note pad that I take to church each Sunday.

Several years before Mom passed away, she and I started writing limericks to each other. A short time ago I ran across one that I wrote and gave it to her on Mother’s Day around 1980. I thought I might share it with you…enjoy.

Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful Mudder.
You are one of a kind, and like no Udder.
I have heard lots of guys,
Refer to my size,
Saying, “Giving birth to him, must have fractured your rudder.”

Mom loved it and put it in her box of keepsakes.

I love you Mom! Until we meet again.
