    For those who still have a mother with them regardless of her age…
    After 17 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to
    take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She
    said, ‘I love you, but I know this other woman loves
    you and would love to spend some time with you.’
    The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit
    was my MOTHER, who has been alone for 20 years,
    but the demands of my work and my two boys had
    made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

    That night I called to invite her to go out for
    dinner and a movie. What’s wrong, aren’t you well,’ she asked?
    My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night
    call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.

    ‘I thought it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,
    ‘ I responded.. ‘Just the two of us. She thought about it for a moment,
    and then said, ‘I would like that very much.’

    That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous.
    When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous
    about our date. She waited in the door. She had curled her hair and was
    wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last birthday on
    November 19th. She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel’s.
    ‘I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were
    impressed,’ she said, as she got into that new white van. ‘They can’t wait
    to hear about our date’.

    We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy.
    My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I
    had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through
    the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me.
    A nostalgic
    smile was on her lips. ‘It was I who used to have to read the menu when you
    were small,’ she said. ‘Then it’s time that you relax and let me
    return the favor,
    I responded.

    During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation- -nothing extraordinary
    but catching up on recent events of each other’s life. We talked so much that
    we missed the movie.

    As we arrived at her house later, she said, ‘I’ll go out with you
    again, but only
    if you let me invite you.’ I agreed.

    ‘How was your dinner date asked my wife when I got home. ‘Very nice.
    Much more so than I could have imagined,’ I answered.

    A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened
    so suddenly that I didn’t have a chance to do anything for her. Some time
    later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the
    same place mother and I had dined. An attached note said: ‘I paid this bill
    in advance. I wasn’t sure that I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid
    for two plates – one for you and the other for your wife.
    You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son.’

    At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: ‘I LOVE YOU’
    and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more
    important than your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these
    things cannot be put off till ’some other time.’

    Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had
    a baby….. somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, normal’
    is history.

    Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct … somebody never took
    a three-year-old shopping.

    Somebody said being a mother is boring …. somebody never rode in a car driven
    by a teenager with a driver’s permit.

    Somebody said if you’re a’good’ mother, your child will ‘turn out
    good’…. somebody
    thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

    Somebody said you don’t need an education to be a mother…. somebody never
    helped a fourth grader with his math.

    Somebody said you can’t love the second child as much as you love the first ….
    somebody doesn’t have two children.

    Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery….
    somebody never watched her ‘baby’ get on the bus for the first day of
    kindergarten …
    or on a plane headed for military ‘boot camp.

    Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets
    married….somebody
    doesn’t know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a
    mother’s heartstrings.

    Somebody said a mother’s job is done when her last child leaves
    home…. somebody never
    had grandchildren.

    Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don’t need to tell her….
    somebody isn’t a mother.

    Pass this along to all the ‘mothers’ in your life
    and to everyone who ever had a mother. This isn’t
    just about being a mother; it’s about appreciating
    the people in your life while you have them….no
    matter who that person is.

    when you have a cause you give up a lot of other things, but you never see this as a sacrifice. you actually enjoy doing what you do, even though others may think you are sacrificing. You may think that a mother that wakes up in the middle of the night to feed her new born baby is sacrificing her own sleep. But she does not see it that way. There is no sacrifice when you love doing what you are doing.So mother thinks like that.
