This day is to honor all mothers for all of the hard work that they have done during their lives. It takes great patience to be a mother. Sometimes it takes the patience of a saint to handle your family life. Take some time off and enjoy a day of rest for yourself. Go out to a restaurant with your mate and family. I hope that all of you have a very good day of relaxation. Love and hard work make up your daily activities. Your children should help you as you do your daily work everyday. Your example is very important to them for their future. When your children go to school, take the time to talk to them and try to understand their thoughts. Give them good guidance, and you will forever be remembered. Some day you will no longer be here. Help your family with your heart and they will never forget you and what you have done with your life. Happy Mother's Day to all of you.
