Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was yesterday, and I participated in the heaviest calling day of the year by phoning my mom to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. My mother lives about 2500 miles from me, so it is hard to pull off a weekend surprise visit. Mom had to settle for a card, an email and a phone call.

To me, Mother’s Day is one of the most special holidays. It’s not religious or patriotic, nor was it created to appease any specific cultural or PC group. It’s just a day to honor the one who gave birth to us. To be sure, the vast majority of moms do a whole lot more than just give us life, and I can’t hope to compete with the hoards of people who have extolled the virtues of moms throughout the ages.

I just wanted to put the log commentary aside for one day and say to my mother and my beautiful wife – and moms everywhere…

Thanks mom.
