Happy Mother’s Day, Ladies! The love that we get from our mothers starts us off in this world and if we are lucky we get enough of that love to sustain us throughout the full ride of our lives. “Thank you” seems too weak a phrase for what mothers do, but I suggest we all say it as often as we can to the mothers in our lives for all that they do everyday. But more than saying it- MEAN IT.
I want to extend special Mother’s Day salutations to my people who are celebrating without their mothers this year- especially if it is the first time. I know there will be some tough moments today but let there be joy inside your tears and a laugh and smile right behind them as you reflect on what made your mother the special gift in your life that I have no doubt she was.
The Progressive Pugilist is the proud father of 4 children who are the authors of more joy in my life than they can ever imagine. To Daien, Houston, Chancellor & Hannah my instruction to you is to
Love your mothers unconditionally, Support their needs joyfully, Defend them ferociously, and Thank Almighty God for them constantly.
Your dad is grateful to your mothers for you and will make sure that you know it for as long as God lets me hang around. Happy Mother’s Day!
