The Carnival of Moms is up and running at the Savant's blog. Visit for some interesting Mother's Day Limericks.
Here are my thoughts:
On this truth, I am ready to swear,
Since God could not be everywhere,
He fashioned these others,
And titling them 'mothers',
Gave them part of his creation to bear!
She held you nine months in her tummy,
Was excited when you called her 'mummy'.
She hugged and she scolded,
You were nurtured and moulded,
And she made all those cookies, real yummy!
You may feel you don't owe her a dime,
She's a nag, who's now well past her prime.
But remember those years,
When she hugged off your fears,
On this day, give her a gift -- of your time.
Padmaja has posed an interesting question regarding the need to have a 'Mother's Day'. Am cross-posting her piece here.
Do we need Mother's Day
To bring up the urge to say,
Ma, I love you n thank you
'Cos you are one of the few
With whom I always have my way!
I have just one question. Do you always get your way with mom?
