My sons have always been great at honoring their mother on Mother’s day. They would often write their own Mother’s Day Cards. I wish I had kept all of them, but unfortunately we don’t always think things are going to be important at the time their happening. But I have a few of them. Chuck 3rd was 10 years old when her wrote this one:


I got the greatest one of all

Better than the rest

She comes whenever I call

She’s better than the best

Whenever I am hungry

Whenever I get hurt,

She’s always there to feed me

And pick me up from the dirt.”

JD was 8 years old when he wrote this one:

“Dear MOM;

You are a better mother than the rest

But everyone says their’s is best, too

But that’s only because,

They haven’t met you.”

I don’t have any cards that I made for my mom on Mother’s day and I’m sad about that. I know we made some for our mom’s in school but for some reason we just didn’t keep them. However, I do have one mother’s day card written by my dad in 1925 for His mother. It just says “Mother’s Day” and has hand drawn flowers all over it. I remember my dad talking very favorably about his mother a lot. She died in 1936, so I never got to meet her. The more I learn about her, the more I admire her.
