A Mother’s Day Message

Dear Friends,

Mother’s day is right around the corner, and I have been trying to figure out what I should get for mine. Maybe send her some flowers or perfume?
My mother is the inspiration for me wanting to becoming a "teacher", that’s what she does, she a NYC school teacher.

Hmm, that’s what she does...

Actually she does way more then that. She's a mother, a grandmother, a wife, a sister, a friend, giver of great advice (even when you don't really want to hear it), among may other things.

As I'm writhing this I'm reminded of a story that I heard in school that I would like to share with you, i hope you will find it of value:

The day before Mother’s Day, a woman stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be sent to her mother who lived 200 miles away.

As she got out of her car she noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. She asked her what was wrong and the girl 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 woman smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” She bought the little girl her rose and ordered her own mother’s flowers.

As they were leaving she offered the girl a ride home. “Yes, please!” she said. “You can take me to my mother.” She directed the woman to a cemetery, where the young girl placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The woman returned to the flower shop, canceled her order, bought an armload of flowers, and drove the two hundred miles to her mother’s house.

After writing that and reading the story again. I figured out what I'm going to do for my mom on mothers day...

I going to let her know what she really is:
She is the greatest woman that I could ever know and the reason that I am the person I am today.

Thanks Mom for being who you are!
(she reads JeffreysJournal.com just like you.)

Please Don’t wait to stop and smell the roses!

When is now a good time to let your mother know what she means to you.
