|Happy Mother's Day, Mama. |
I love you!
I'll admit it: I hate picking out greeting cards. And I especially hate it when the occasion calls for something seriously heart-felt. For the most part, my family is not now and never has been into "mush." That makes it extremely difficult to find a Mother's Day card for my mother. One that strikes a good balance between syrupy sweet poetry stating what a perfect mother she is and...let's say...Maxine issuing a warning about mixing medications. However, this year, after several
minutes hours in CVS, I finally came up with an appropriate card, and I managed to get it in the mail so she'll receive it in time. (I think.)
But wouldn't you know, just when I'm feeling very smug about my accomplishment, I actually do find a way to say exactly what I want. I can't put it in the mail, but I can share it here. And while it does get a little mushy in parts, it tells the truth about "perfect" mothering. So Mama, this is for you and all mothers who are “lavish in love, extravagant in truth, big spenders of grace.”
