This is a re-post of last year's May blog - can't improve on this one - it's from the heart...

Mother's Day is TOMORROW: time to CELEBRATE the most special people in the world - MOMS! 

This month's blog is very simple and from the heart. I have always believed that the hardest yet most rewarding "profession" in the world is being a mother - agree? This month's message is let's make the world a happier place one kind gesture at a time...

I grew up in a large family, the oldest of 7 children. My youngest sister (on my lap) is only 10-1/2 years behind me - how's that for Baby Boomers!! 50 years later, we are fortunate that our parents are still with us and doing fine - it's been a fun ride. Personally, I've been married almost 38 years to the most wonderful woman in the world and we have two awesome sons (which is plenty for us) - I'm truly blessed.

When I was young and asked my mom what she wanted for Mother's Day, she would always say "good kids". As the years have gone by, what she appreciates most is quality time with family (individually and at get-togethers). I'm sure most moms feel the same way. Mother's Day is the perfect holiday to REACH OUT and appreciate not only moms, but families (yours and others') and friends. Why not make it a habit?  

Make a point of appreciating ALL moms this week. Surprise them by saying "Happy Mother's Day" out of the blue (yes, even to strangers with kids in the Grocery Store and other public places) - do it "just because"... Encourage others in your life to do the same thing! It will make their day and the smiles you will all get in return will be priceless. Don't stop on Monday just because Mother's Day is over - why not keep the momentum going throughout the year by wishing moms everywhere the best... Let's make EVERY day "Happy Mother's Day" - MOMS DESERVE IT!!!

  1. Chip, I couldn't agree with you more! Moms are some of our most amazing people and dearest comrades. Let's appreciate each and every one while we still have them!
