Happy Mother's Day 2009! myspace graphic comments
Myspace Mothers Day Graphics

In whatever language, mother is unquestionably the most adorable and the most beautiful word. This word stands for a world of things a mother gives to her child along with the sacrifices, sorrows and grief she has to undergo for her children’s happiness. Indeed, you can have a number of husbands or wives but you can only have one mother. She is simply irreplaceable. That is why the most important person in an individual’s life is his or her mother.

Here’s an inspiring story about Mother’s Day from that I also posted here a year ago.

A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.

He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.
But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars."

The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I'll buy you a rose."

He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother's flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home.

She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother."

She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother's house.

Please don't forget to greet your mother on this special occasion. Happy mother’s day to all mothers out there!

Hey Leo,
I couldn't agree with you about mothers. They are indispensable in my book. My mother is in a nursing home and I was able to spend 2 hrs with her this afternoon. I will see her again on Tuesday good Lord willing. Thanks for this post my friend. This world would be a sorry place if it were not for moms!

Friends 4 Life!
