Happy Mother's Day

This is a special day for all mothers--and grandmothers.  We had dinner on Thursday night with my dear daughter and I received flowers today from my dear son.  I am so blessed.  In church today they read Erma Bombeck's description of a mother.  It brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye.  My dear mother faithfully read her column in  the local paper and one of Erma's books was always a good choice for a birthday or Christmas present.  (Check out this link to read the whole thing.)  Erma was a wise philosopher although she probably thought of herself as a humorist.  At the end of this piece there is a discussion between an angel and God:  Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.  "There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model."
It's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."
"What's it for?"
"It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride."
"You are a genius," said the angel.
Somberly, God said, "I didn't put it there."   
Happy Mother's Day to all.
