In a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, Calvin steps up to his mother’s bed and says, “Hey, Mom! Wake up. I made you a Mother’s Day card.” His mother starts to read it aloud:
“I was going to buy a card with hearts of pink and red.
But then I thought I’d rather spend the money instead.
It’s awfully hard to buy things when one’s allowance is so small.
So I guess you’re plenty lucky I got you anything at all.
Happy Mother’s Day. There, I’ve said it. Now I’m done.
So how about getting out of bed and fixing breakfast for your son.”
Unlike Calvin, let’s show a bit more appreciation for the moms who have meant so much to our lives!
