Mom is Wow
~ Mother’s Day Reflection
When is Mother’s Day 2013?
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

‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex.’
Then she describes a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods’ podium, blue backdrop and all. “There’s something you don’t know about me,” Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. “Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem.” More laughter. “That would be freaking funny.”
When asked how she will deal with sports celebrity in the post-Woods world, in which the tabloids, websites and televisions cameras can threaten even a pristine reputation, Vonn seems nonplussed. “Well, I’m married” — to her ski coach, Thomas Vonn, since 2007 — “so I don’t have that problem,” she says. “But, um, I guess [Woods] is married too.” Then she turns serious. “I mean, I guess if you have secrets, you have an issue. I’ve kind of been open about everything.”
However, things must have changed because Lindsey Vonn is officially single.
The 28-year-old gold medalist, who is the most decorated female skier in U.S. history, is officially divorced from her husband and former coach, Thomas Vonn.
The couple filed for divorce in November 2011 after four years of marriage.
Still believe it is one of the dumbest and questionable dating choices in recent years.
Lindsey must have had a few too many falls on the slopes???
Hope she keeps her ski poles handy!
Just wondering if Tiger ever got his golf club back?

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools
and ran to the bog..
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’
‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.
‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.
‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.
‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.
Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son’s name?
Sir Winston Churchill.
Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
Work like you don’t need the money.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.
Dance like nobody’s watching.
Sing like nobody’s listening..
Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.
Send this to everyone you consider A FRIEND.
Pass this on, and brighten some one’s day.

A photographer on vacation was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read ‘$10,000 per call’.
The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for.
The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.
The American thanked the priest and went along his way.
Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it.
He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw inOrlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.
She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.
‘O.K., thank you,’ said the American.
He then travelled to Indianapolis, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York.
In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same ‘$10,000 per call’ sign under it.
The American, upon leaving Vermont decided to travel up to Canada to see if Canadians had the same phone.
He arrived in Canada, and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read ’50 cents per call.’
The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. ‘Father, I’ve travelled all over America and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to heaven, but in the US the price was$10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?’
The priest smiled and answered, ‘You’re in Canada now, son … it’s a local call.’
If you are proud to be a Canadian pass this on!
AND IF YOU ARE A PROUD AMERICAN
WHO CAN TAKE A JOKE,
YOU MAY PASS THIS ON TOO!

To those of us who have children in our lives,
Whether they are our own, grandchildren,
Nieces, nephews, or students…
Here is something to make you chuckle.
Whenever your children are out of control,
you can take comfort from the thought
that even God’s omnipotence did not extend to
His own children.
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.
And the first thing he said was ‘DON’T! ‘
‘Don’t what ?’ Adam replied.
‘Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.’ God said.
‘Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit?
Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit! ’
‘ No Way ! ‘
‘Yes way! ‘
‘Do NOT eat the fruit! ’ said God.
‘Because I am your Father and I said so!
‘ God replied, wondering
Why He hadn’t stopped creation after
making the elephants.
A few minutes later, God saw His children
Having an apple break and He was ticked !
‘Didn’t I tell you not to eat the fruit? ’ God asked.
‘Uh huh,’ Adam replied.
‘Then why did you? ‘ said the Father.
‘I don’t know,’ said Eve.
‘She started it! ’ Adam said.
‘Did not ! ’
‘Did too! ’
‘DID NOT! ’
Having had it with the two of them,
God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve
should have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.
If you have persistently and lovingly
tried to give children wisdom
And they haven’t taken it,
don’t be hard on yourself.
If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think
It would be a piece of cake for you ?
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !
1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk.
Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.
2. Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your own children.
3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.
4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat
Word for word what you shouldn’t have said.
5. The main purpose of holding children’s parties
Is to remind yourself that there are children
more awful than your own.
6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.
ADVICE FOR THE DAY:
Be nice to your kids..
They will choose your nursing home one day!
IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU GET A HEADACHE,
DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:
‘TAKE TWO ASPIRIN’ AND ‘KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN’!!!!!
Quick, send this on to ten people within the next five minutes.
Nothing will happen if you don’t, but if you do,
Ten people will be laughing!!

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”
The man below says, “Yes. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above this field. You are between 40 and 42 degrees North latitude, and between 58 and 60 degrees West longitude.”
“You must be an engineer,” says the balloonist.
“I am,” replies the man. “How did you know?”
“Well,” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost.”
The man below says, “You must be a manager.”
“I am,” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”
“Well,” says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you are going. You have made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now it is somehow my fault.”
“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

Carnival is an important celebration in Catholic European nations. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the week before Ash Wednesday is called ” shrovetide ” , ending on Shrove Tuesday. It has its popular celebratory aspects as well. Pancakes are a traditional food. Pancakes and related fried breads or pastries made with sugar, fat and eggs are also traditionally consumed at this time in many parts of Latin America and the Caribbean ~ wikipedia

Groundhog Day Joke
Over breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, ‘I bet you don’t know what day this is?’
‘Of course I do,’ he answered indignantly, as he slammed the door, and drove to his office.
At 11 o’clock, the doorbell rang. The wife answered, and there at her front door was a UPS driver, in his had was a box containing 12 red roses.
Later, at 2 pm there was another knock at the door, this time it was a deluxe box of Belgian chocolates.
Eventually the husband came home, tired after a hard day’s work. His wife greeted him by saying: ‘First the flowers, then the chocolates, I’ve never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day in my life!’
