Mothers and Happiness

Mothers and Happiness

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.~ Mother Teresa

First let me say, Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and my sisters who are now all mothers, hope you all have a great day!  This extends to my friends who are moms as well.

Here in this blog we typically talk about finding happiness but today a quick post about receiving happiness.  The reason we understand what happiness is, is because our mothers taught it to us first.  The provided us with our first hug, they satisfied our hunger, eased our entrance into a bright and terrifying world and held us tight and safe so that we could sleep.

As we aged, it was our mother’s who cured our wounds with band-aids and kisses, it was their shoulders we first cried on when we learned how cruel the world could be.  They over protectively scared off bullies, told our teachers that “their” kid would never do that, even though we new we were as guilty as they come.  In the immortal words of Pink Floyd, “mama never let anyone dirty get in.”  They protected us like the momma bears they were and in return for protecting us, making us safe and teaching us what happiness is, they have earned our undying love and affection, on behalf of all the members of the Ministry of Happiness, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and anyone doing the job of a mother out there and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
