Ode to mom.

I just want to take a moment to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mothers out there. Hopefully your children/spouses did right by you. I have some plans today for Ktreva, the boys and I for today, but that is a surprise.

I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite poems about mom.

“An Ode to my Mother,” By Peter Bilker (Mickey Jones) From K&B Construction as read on Tool Time (On the show Home Improvement)

"Who etched this tattoo, [Pete turns his shoulder with the tattoo towards the camera]
In her purple muumuu?
Mother, mother.

Who posted my bail,
Every time without fail?
Mother, mother.

And who rushed to the car,
With my severed thumb in a jar?
Er, father, father.

But who sewed it back on,
When the doctor was gone?
Mother, Mother."

That’s just beautiful, but lets not forget from the same episode:


“M is for the million things she gave to me,

O means only that she’s growing old,

T is for the tears you shed to save me,

H is for the heart of purest gold,

E is for their eyes with love lights shining.

R means right, and right you’ll always be,

When you put them all together they spell: Mother, a word that means the world to me.”

Unfortunately I couldn’t find the proper pictures of the tools to make the letters, sorry.
