Mother's Day


I feel better. I am better. I just need to do better. And I will. Just not today. How's your day? And, in my best Wendy Williams voice, I am impelled to ask, "How you doin'?"


It's the thought that counts. Right? No matter how hard I want it to not be so, and no matter how hard I wish it to be so, a thing doesn't necessarily look better than I feel. Aha! I just remembered! I can blame the humidity. Yes I can. The humidity affects markers. That's why they won't blend. And the humidity curls my book's jacket and the pages curl. It makes breathing a gentle labor. (The up side of all the moisture is it makes for great complexions. Most Southern women have nice pliable skin.)  Whew. Thought it was just me. So, here's to an excusable bed head day, a wore-my-gown-half-the-day day, a had a can of beans for dinner day, and this wonderful wishing-all-mothers-a Happy Mother's Day day. Moms, this one's for you.

  1. Happy Mother's Day to you Limner! Mother's Day is in March here so it can get very confusing. I have to remember to get a card for my mother in March and hope I don't lose it by May so I can send it home to my Mom.

    1. Thank you, dear Anna. I hope your day was special. And just for the record, I think you should celebrate both holidays. :D

      I just know your mom would appreciate your juggling act. :)

  2. I love the idea of a "wore-my-gown-for-half-the-day day". That really sums up how a Mother's Day should be. We had our Mother's Day a few weeks ago and that's how my partner treated it.

    1. I took the advice in JC's MD card to me: Just relax and take it easy and have a great day! Hallmark helped make my day.

      Your partner is just as smart as I am. All mothers should do what they want on the day. ;)

      Did you spend time with your mother?
