Happy Mother's Day: Thanks, prayers are in order

May 10. 2014 1:19AM

It is Mother's Day. Those ought to be two of the most beautiful words in the English language. They should cause kids to give thanks, fathers to do likewise, and those who have lost their own moms to reflect today on cherished memories.

It is not always the case, of course.

Today's world has too many distractions and too many stories of mothers abused or mothers who neglect their own children.

We should all be concerned with this. We should all do what we can to assist and support families who are struggling. An easy way? Lead by example. Show your mom the respect and love that are the only real presents she wants on this, her day.

If she is no longer here in person, say a prayer for her and thank your own lucky stars that she was here once upon a time.
