Last-minute Mother's Day gift ideas from Macy's

Too much

It's amusing how my idea of "unwinding" at the end of the day has shifted into processing my thoughts and prayers as I scrub the floors because it's the only time I get to do it without interruption.

This Mother's Day, those babies born seven weeks early at five pounds, 10 ounces and five pounds, one ounce (which was enormous for their gestational age) are strapping young men who have just turned the age of adulthood in every part of the word. It has been a learning experience.

Today I am also remembering the woman who crafted that poem because she too is a mother. I always remind myself of that with whatever I do, so whenever I feel like giving up, I see your faces and they keep me going. Do we know the cost?

So it is Mother's Day tomorrow and it's a time for flowers, gifts, cakes and more so that you can thank your mom for putting up with all your troubles for all those years.

What I have learned by keeping in touch with some of these moms is that even though some of them no longer have children because of loss, they still have a mother's heart - broken, to be sure, but big and benevolent. She sacrifices sleep, energy, and time. Then, her protests escalated to arrests for public disturbances. She went after first lady Eleanor Roosevelt for using Mother's Day as a way to promote the health and welfare of women and children.

Thanks for being there through the tears, laughter and dirty diapers. You need to do it one by one, to look into their eyes and listen to their stories and light up when you see them like fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. She continues, "I don't have to know perfectly whether I should respond with firmness or compassion, whether I should just listen or give direction, whether I should get involved and defend my child or give them space to work through it". Some may question the way you raised me but Mom, I don't.

Sen. Paul says he's a 'no' vote against Central Intelligence Agency nominee
President Trump, however, praised Haspel's performance and released a contrasting statement to social media hours after McCain. He was diagnosed previous year with glioblastoma , a rare, aggressive form of brain cancer that killed Democratic Sen.

So, to my ever loving Mama, this letter is for you. Who you are matters.

God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.

Days like this is also a reminder about the special bond between you and your mother that overrides everything and anything. Celebrate the little victories.

In Egypt meanwhile, the day is celebrated with classical songs celebrating mothers. So, be you. Just you. I do not know how would I survive in this harsh world without you.

If your mom's reaction to your Mother's Day gift doesn't feel genuine, your hunch might be right.

"She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, put spoons and bowls on the table for breakfast, and set up the coffee pot. What I do need to do is be open and vulnerable, to listen and be willing to adapt and change, to be courageous enough to say, 'tell me more ... help me understand ...' and then be willing to really listen ..." It was where Jarvis' late mother had taught Sunday school for a good portion of her life.

While you might think that Jarvis would be pleased with how quickly her celebration of maternal love had grown, she actually became resentful of its rapid commercialisation. Silence the critics. Thank her for being her. We can never be separated from the divine Father-Mother God.
