Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April or May. It complements Father’s Day, a similar celebration honoring fathers.
Mother’s Day is an American invention. It is not directly descended from the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the ChristianMothering Sunday celebration. Despite this, in some countries Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions. ~ wikipedia
As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized - It’s the tortoise life for me!
1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so. I’m retired. Go around me!
Always thought I would be a wonderful Grandparent and enjoy spoiling my Grandkids.
I believe it’s our right to spoil our Grandkids.
Grandparents seem to have an innate desire to protect, love and spoil.
Spoiling Grandchildren is as natural as breathing.
It’s beyond our control!
But, how am I going to compete with this?
Grandparents Steve and Jeri Wakefield of Dallas
wanted to give their two grandsons the treehouse of their dreams.
And they did!
It’s one thing to be spoiled and another to be spoiled rotten!
That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
My attempt above.
Hope my grandkids never google ~ best tree forts!!!!
‘You don’t spoil your grandchildren do you? A:’Not this morning, I haven’t seen them yet.’
What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudolph Giuliani
I always give my grandkids a couple of quarters when they go home. It’s a bargain. ~Gene Perret
When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window. ~Ogden Nash
Women are so good at multitasking that they just might miss something like a little Hear Attack!
“I know…how can a video about women and heart attacks be funny?
But, somehow they managed to make this one both informative and amusing.
There’s a lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but one area in particular where women are leading in record numbers: heart disease. It’s the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer.
