Happy Mothers Day


No recipe today. Mother’s Day off!  Today MTTD simply honors mothers every where with some poetry, some quotes, and the funniest Mother’s Day video ever.

First up some poetry. As a former reading teacher I really like this poem.


Richer Than Gold

You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be —
I had a mother who read to me.

Strickland Gillilan (1869-1954)


Mother Doesn’t Want a Dog

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they smell,
And never sit when you say sit,
Or even when you yell.
And when you come home late at night
And there is ice and snow,
You have to go back out because
The dumb dog has to go.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they shed,
And always let the strangers in
And bark at friends instead,
And do disgraceful things on rugs,
And track mud on the floor,
And flop upon your bed at night
And snore their doggy snore.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
She’s making a mistake.
Because, more than a dog, I think
She will not want this snake.

Judith Viorst

A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.       Peter De Vries

There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.
Chinese Proverb

No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you – life .    Anonymous

And now the funniest Mother’s Day video ever. I like this video becasue it is so realistic and true to life. It is sibling rivarly at its very best. Yet some how it manages to convey the right message.XXX




Whether you are the honoree today or you are the one honoring your mother I wish you all enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.
