Jane Wishes Moms a Happy One

Jane wishes all mothers, everywhere, a Happy Mother's day.

This is a holiday -- yes, a holiday -- that we take for granted here in the U.S. Every year children create cards in school, or accompany Dad (or another family member) to CVS or WalMart or Target, or...smart kids and Dads went online weeks ago, to Shop.com or Quixtar, or your site, dear reader, to purchase a trinket for Mom, in observance of a day created...not by thankful children or husbands...but by a Mother, herself, long ago in the early years of the 20th century, long before Dick and Jane were created.

Jane would like to give thanks to Ann Marie Reeves Jarvis, and her daughter Anna Jarvis, for their devotion Ann_marieand dedication to mothers.

We hope this Sunday passes in sunshine for all, but, if it does not, we hope those who experience rain will remember that a child's smile is as bright as the noonday sun, and all mother's cherish each child's smile in a special part of her heart, rain or shine...night or day...winter, spring, summer, and fall.

That's what it means to be a Mother.

We think there is a whole lot to like about that.

I found it interesting that you mentioned Shop.com and Quixtar.

As a Quixtar rep, I think your readers should know that you can actually visit Shop.com THROUGH the Quixtar site. Even better, Huh?

Again, let me say how much I enjoy your efforts here. My readers may start to tire of me talking about you at my blog.

I may have to break down and do some template changes to put LipSticking in my "Links I Like" sidebar. Oh well, a blog can never have too many links. (or so They say)
