Mothers day circa 2006

Today I think of mothers that have lost their children in Iraq. Its not a happy thought of course, its sad and depressing. I do not wish to depress you, my dear reader, that isn't my intent. But, the one thing mothers seem to have in massive doses is compassion.

Mommy's are the most compassionate bunch of human's on the planet. Its something they find within themselves when they become mothers if they didn't feel it already. Compassion can feed the spirit, lifting us up when things seem bleak. Its an emotion that is essential to being a decent human being. That said, mothers are usually the most decent human beings on the planet. I like being part of the "Mommy" brigade. I think it made me a better human being. I think it sustained me when I was ready to toss in the towel on life during various points in my long journey through this world.

Mommy's are the glue that holds this world together. Lets rejoice that there are Mommy's! Lets hope that we get to see a Mothers day next year that has no war in it.

I learned in church this morning that Mother's day originally started (or was intended) as a day to honor women and PEACE a day of no war.

I thought you'd enjoy that little fact. Happy momma's day peaceful hearted one. May you have a day and week of a peace filled soul and a calm spirit.

You're right. Killing all the white Republican cocksuckers IS the only answer.
