urp... Mum really, really.. urp... enjoyed the lobsters... urp.

I get her a dozen red roses every year so this year I got them yesterday so it would be more of a surprise. It was.

Tomorrow, I am gonna get a nice cake for her. She eyes the cakes when we pass them in the bakery section. When she was a child, her father, a master baker who ran his own business, would make a special cake for the birthday kid. Means a lot to her because it was a rare treat in the late 20s and in the 30s... a special gift at Christmas would be an orange... times were tough.

Two years ago, I gathered all of the pics I had of my mother-in-law, starting with the first photo taken of her as a new mother, holding her brand new baby, (who later became my husband), and continuing on with photos of her with her other children as they grew through the years, right on through to her grandmother and great-grandmotherhood. After adding captions and personal thoughts, I sent them off to be printed and bound into a hard-cover keepsake book, and presented it to her on Mother's Day. She absolutely loved it! And then she was gone 6 weeks later. I'm so glad I had that chance to let her know how important she was to our family.

Well, first of all, a happy Mother's Day to all the mothers here in Mudville... Make it a good 'un... You know, get drunk, 'er somethin'... Jus' messin'... No, don't get drunk... Jus have a great day and remember that even if yer kids are far away and can't come to visit then it's okay to tell yer cheapskate hubbies to take you out to a fancy resturant...

As fir mine... Well, I'm gonna dig up a few plants and drive up 'um (and me) up to Leesburg, Va. and plant them in her "ditzy garden"... That's what she calls it 'cause she likes smallish, eclectic stuff...

Yeah, I'll spend a couple hours with her and that oughtta make her a happy mom...

My 3 son-in-laws don't "get" Mother's Day so they usually don't call... Bad boys... So I made the P-Vine a yummy omlet for breakfast and wished her a happy Mother's Day...

There's a few mudguyz around here who I'd like to wish a happy mother's day to but that's a different story so I'll just leave it at that...

Ya'll have a good 'un, ya' hear???

Anyone who has done Momming deserves extra hugs, no mistake. It is a heroic business. I know I couldn't do it. But I am grateful so many have done it as well as they have.

There was a tradition in church on mother's day..wearing a flower..
carnation...with red for living mother,,,,and white if your mother
was no longer alive...after listening to the song link above "Mother, I Miss You" I am having sad memories missing my mom..who passed away 8 years ago. Also having joyful memories of her smile, her generosity, and loving the story of KT and the pictures...
My mom grew up on a farm, and many times she taught me lessons about sharing with your neighbors, and helping those around you. These are things that people often do more in rural life, I think, and good
lessons to learn. Her hard time stories involve eating popcorn with
milk on it for breakfast..at least farmers usually had milk and eggs (and popcorn) to eat. No mother should have to live to see their children pass away. I hope that all you mud moms and mud kids out there have a good time together today or at least a card, letter or phone call or e-mail. My daughters and I sometimes go canoeing on this day but it may rain so we have a plan to go bowling..that way we can stay warm and dry.

Mother's Day always meant a nice meal in, sometimes out,and planting lots of annuals with our mom. The annuals tradition continues as my kids and/or grandkid always give me pansies, marigolds, and violas, the Morgan the Grandson helps me plant them. This year my son bought me a beautiful Rubrum Lily and my brother bought me deep purple butterfly bush, both of which my son planted for me. My daughter back East sent me a beautiful card and emailed snapshots of herself with my identical twin grandsons, Elijah and Akira, who will be 12 this month! All in all, it's been a pretty good day.

I couldn't watch the video...too sad...still miss my mom and have too much other stuff going on to be strong enough to watch it for now. Beautiful sentiments, though.

My dad and mom's ranching families always had apples and popcorn with oranges at Christmas, if they were lucky enough to get some in the general store that my granddad managed.

Katlaughing: "I couldn't watch the video...too sad...still miss my mom and have too much other stuff going on to be strong enough to watch it for now."

There is really no video to watch. They just put up one picture,(I think of either the singers mom, or the composer's, not sure), but the song was rather touching...well, at least for some. It might be a song worth learning, if the occasion, ever came up to use it...I don't know....anyway, I'll re-post the link, for anyone who wants to check it out.

Mother I Miss You

A Mother's Love by Reggie Miles 12/21/09

In the whole wide world round
There's only one that can be found
Whose love will never change a bit
No matter how far astray I get

Though years may keep us apart
No length of time could sway her heart
A mother's love can't be undone
Not even for her wanderin' one

And so today I take the time
To express in words and rhyme
And say what's always been inside
Like the double shoelace knot she tied

That my love for you has ever been
Strong and true, without end
Yes, my love for you has always been
Strong and true and without end

Being a Brit Mothers Day is celebrated earlier in the year and I got cards and stuff from both my kids then.

I was surprised, and very touched, therefore, to receive cards and gifts from my stepdaughters this year. I now have a lovely framed photo of Kendall to put up in the rogues' gallery and a beautiful Bizzy Lizzie to look at all summer. The cards will go into my 'keep' section.

As mentioned above, in the UK Mothers Day is called "Mothering Sunday" and is also known as "Mid-Lent Sunday". You can probably work out from this that it's the middle Sunday in lent.

Until recently, it wasn't celebrated by cards but often involved collecting wild flowers and presenting them to your mother. Traditionally, young people "in service" (quite a large proportion of the population as this included most agricultural labourers as well as house servants) were allowed home on that day, and given presents for their mother, including the ingredients to make a Simnel Cake (to be eaten at Easter).

GfS, I know it was a static picture...I refer to anything on youtube as video, as a generic catch-all.

That's neat, Jacqui, but what is a Dizzy Lizzy? (I hope QE2 hasn't gone bonkers?!:-)

Reggie, that's really lovely.

Here's one that Jeri wrote, using a posting by my sister, "bet," back in 1999 about our mom:

bet's original posting.

Jeri's song:

My Mother's Garden

I wish I had a song for Mom.
Of joy and life and laughter
Of how springtime follows winter
Now and ever after.

My mom cared for my garden when she moved in with me
I was glad to let her do it, I couldn't keep up with the weeds
Sometimes, I would come home to find she'd been working in the flowers
Weeding here, planting there for untold peaceful hours.

It was a good flower bed, and the sun it shone on all
And people always noticed it when e'er they came to call
Today I cleaned her garden, in quiet happy toil
And sowed some seeds of her beloved wildflowers in the soil.

She'd dug up all the irises, one day when I came home
I complained they were the one thing that could manage on their own
She smiled and said that they'd come back, for Iris always do
And I held my tongue, for mother always knew.

Last year there were no irises, and mother too had passed
I thought she'd been wrong to believe the fragile flowers could last
But this morning as I cleared debris from last year, past and gone
I found them sprouting once again, tiny, sure and strong.

And she wanted only one thing the night before she died
She wanted me to take her home, but this one thing was denied
I regret I tried to hold her here, I wanted her to stay
But she knew her time had come, only "goodbye" left to say.

But this morning in the garden, she told me she'd come home
And she would always be with me, I'd never be alone
In the garden, I will know she's there and everything's alright
In the garden, I will feel her love as the flowers feel the light.

I wish I had a song for Mom
Of joy and life and laughter
Of how springtime follows winter
Now and ever after.

It's been 43+ years since I had a mother. I get teary-eyed when I think about time spent with my mom and whenever I remember that I do something the way that I do because she taught me to.

My son who lives in the same town as me brought his family over for lunch Sunday and gave me flowers. The other two sons phoned, as did one daughter. Our eldest daughter, who was probably working a 12 hour shift, spending the little time she had off from work with her own children and her granddaughter, didn't have time to call.

gnu, that was our treat at Christmas, too, an orange and some nuts in one of Dad's wool work socks. As my children came along, I made a felt stocking with his or her name on it for each, then for their spouses, and now for their children. Stockings are hung for whomever will be with us Christmas Day. Santa always puts an orange in the toe of each Christmas stocking, followed by a handful of nuts before small gifts are added.

Thanks, Ian! I have their catalogue and am familiar with impatiens, but never noticed that moniker. That "Dizzy" Lizzie has got to be my mind going weird thinking of rhyming words with the grandson, yesterday, and their "nanny" dog being named "Dizzy" although she is not, even if I do call her "Dizzy Dame."*bg*

gnu, We had lobster at home...which was spent as a rather quiet day, just answering the phone calls from all over the country, from the kids, and grand-kids.

there you go, an uneventful, peaceful Mother's Day.
