Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

 1905 Cuppel new the year my mama was born 

My Mother was a teen before she saw a  car.


   The Mothers I have known up close:

             Mama's Mother Granny Lloyd
           My Daddy's Mother, Granny Darnell
Mother, she was known as Mama 
or Sister Darnell

Sherry's mama, She was Mama 
or Sister Harris.....

For today:

WE (MEN) have just a small idea of what mothers lives are like.  Reading history the life of a mother has always been tougher than the father.

We men know how uncomfortable it is to be overweight, but we have no idea how it feels to quickly add 7-20 pounds to our ‘belly region’, and how it gets in the way. I know for sure WE have no idea the pains and uncomforts accompanying child bearing.

All that said, A mother must know ‘sheer joy’ of seeing that child that caused her so much pain and annoy-ment just minutes after the birthing is complete.

There is something special methinks of the daughter/mother relationship that the son will not know. The son will NEVER know that sheer joy, but the mother knows most likely that daughter will.

I could see and learned something special when I married Sherry. There was a special connection between that mother and that daughter.  It was a connection that was obvious.

I have commented on that when some of you ladies mention the closeness of you and your mother or you and your daughter.

So A HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO YOU ALL, and to my sweetheart who is a special mother to her boys, and special Grand MOTHER to her grands.


   She is Mama to Jack Jr and Mark D.

Funny that, Sherry had no daughters, but when Mark and Corinne presented her with Sherece, the only granddaughter, there was THAT special connection, she had her daughter. ;-)

I think tomorrow I will mention Mary, the mother of Jesus. That took a special kind of lady.


PS:  Quotes that THINK:

When you get a headache,  take two aspirin and keep away from children just like the bottle says.

I think you are a very wise man, Jack. Thank you for this tribute to mothers.

God bless you and Sherry and family.

I wish I'd thought to do something like this, Jack! When I consider the unselfish sacrifices of those women who've gone before? Wow.
I've no doubt, your Sherry is a blessing --not only to you, but to all who are fortunate to know her.

Sweet post Jack.
Those are some beautiful and precious women you mentioned.
I wish I could post photos of my mom but I have no pictures of her other than side views or mad views because she will not let us take her picture. The ones I have of her, I had to sneak and take and I cant let her know I have them. OR if I do have one she knows about, I have to promise I want pot it. I think that is the only selfish thing my mom does and thats ok. She is a good mother.

I hope Sherrys day was wonderful.
