Happy Mother's Day
I want to wish a very happy Mother's Day to all today. This is an important day to spend some meaningful time with your mother or to remember her in some way that fills her heart with joy for all the love she has for her children.
But there are also some sad things about the day. Retail trade groups report that 151 million cards will be sold today, but only 92 million for Father's Day. This is deeply sad for a number of reasons including death, divorce, absent fathers, seperation.
A very constructive change for society is better health care so that fathers live longer. Another constructive change is better families where marriage means something. And for many men to take more responsibility in their personal lives and conduct.
Some day it would be very nice if as many Father's Day cards as Mother's Day cards would be sold.
God bless all today.
