I always loved my mom's hands.
*Carry a band-aid, Shout wipe and gum with you at all times.
*If you shake out your clothes when you take them out of the washing machine before you put them in the dryer, you'll have way less wrinkles.
*Serve quietly, behind the scenes where you're not likely to be acknowledged.
*If you have too many zucchini in your garden and you don't know how to get rid of them, fill a wheelbarrow, put on a pair of overalls and go door to door to the neighbors begging them to take a few. Even though it's guaranteed to completely embarrass your children.
*Don't be afraid to try to learn something new, no matter your age. Mom bought and learned to play the banjo when I was in junior high. Of course at the time, I was mortified that my mother was a hillbilly. But now I think it's hysterical. I'm trying to decide which instrument I should take up... fiddle?
*Hand-written letters in the mail - even if you only talk about the weather - are a wonderful way to stay in touch across the miles.
*Homemade is the best. Especially when it comes to chocolate chip cookies.
*Do it now. You'll be glad you didn't procrastinate.
*Pray. About everything.
*Find the funny in as many situations as you can.
*Say 'I love you.' Touch a face. Squeeze a hand.
Happy Mother's Day!
