"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie"

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness"

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out
to dinner and a movie. She said I love you but I know this other woman
loves you and would love to spend some time with you.

The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has
been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three
children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.

'What's wrong, are you well,' she asked? My mother is the type of woman
who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign
of bad news.

'I thought that it would be pleasant to be with you,' I responded. 'Just
the two of us.'

She thought about it for a moment, and then said, 'I would like that
very much.'

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit

When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be
nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had
curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate
her last wedding anniversary.

She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel's.

'I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were
impressed, 'she said, as she got into the car. 'They can't wait to hear
about our meeting'. We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant,
was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First

After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Large print. Half way through
the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A
nostalgic smile was on her lips.

'It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,' she

'Then it's time that you relax and let me return the favor,' I

During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation - nothing
extraordinary, but catching up on recent events of each other's life. We
talked so much that we missed the movie.

As we arrived at her house later, she said, 'I'll go out with you again,
but only if you let me invite you.' I agreed.

'How was your dinner date?' asked my wife when I got home. 'Very nice
Much more so than I could have imagined,' I answered.

A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened
so suddenly that I didn't have time to do anything for her.

Some time later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant
receipt from the same place mother and I had dined.

An attached note said: 'I paid this bill in advance. I wasn't sure that
I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid for two plates - one for you
and the other for your wife. You will never know what that night meant
for me.

I love you, son.'

At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: 'I LOVE
YOU!' and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in
life is more important than God and your family. Give them the time they
deserve, because these things cannot be put off till 'some other time.'

tat's mothers love isn't!!!!!.......people never mind where u are & what u are doing please do reciprocate your love which your mother shows to you & do spend some time with them because they expect nothing else from you except for your care, love & affection




MOM, Mummy, Ma, Amma and whatever you call the word means only one soul..

The one who loves you for nothing..

The one soul who fed u with her blood..

Well no words can explain the affection and love that a mom can shower on her kids..
