Happy Mother’s Day!!

 

 

 

 

 

Mother’s Day falls on May 13th this year and I just want to take a few moments and recognize all our mothers.

If you’re a mother, thank you for your service! Once you are drafted into motherhood, your tour of duty is endless! No matter how old your child is, you are always his/her mother. There is NO retirement from motherhood.

When your children are young, you are an expert – the best thing since sliced bread. Somehow, between that stage and their adulthood, you lose a lot of intelligence. Just ask your kids!

Being a mom is like no other job in the world, and her job is never done. Unlike a typical 8-to-5 job, motherhood is a “career” often motivated by pure, unwavering love. While she’s responsible for so much, often it may feel as if she goes unappreciated, or at least under-appreciated.

If your mother has passed, treasure your memories. If she’s still part of your life, hold her close to you.  Make her Mother’s Day something special.

 

I am blessed. I still have my mother – 88 years and going strong. I realize that there will come a time when I kiss her goodbye and she passes from this world to the next. I hope it’s a LONG way off!

Let’s reach out to all the moms in our lives and
remind them 
how loved and appreciated they are!

Happy Mother’s Day!!

About Gail Pinder

I was born in New Jersey and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have lived in many places – Texas, Arkansas, Delaware and finally Michigan. Several years ago, I met a wonderful man – a Vietnam Navy vet who shares my love of God and Country! We have been happily married for more than 15 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four wonderful grandchildren. Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. He is now in a powerchair and I am his caregiver. Life is somewhat challenging, but we do the best we can. We tell everyone that “We have MS, but it doesn’t have us!” I have always loved to write and my dream was to becoming a “writer”. PICC gave me a window to my dream and an opportunity to share my thoughts with others. Our faith is strong and I don’t know where we would be without it. We are determined to spread a little sunshine in a darkened world. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 14 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four grandchildren. My husband and I both have MS and I am his caregiver. We tell everyone that "we have MS but it doesn't have us!"
