A special Adlandpro Friday news celebrating Mother’s Day and some other news from our community.
As many of you know Mother’s day is this Sunday May the 11th, 2014 and this special day is celebrated in many countries including Finland, Itably, Canada, china and the United States (just to mention just a few).
Unfortunately Mother’s day has also become very commercialized and many businesses make good money with their aggressive advertising campaign, something not everyone is liking.
Thankfully there are also many people who honor their mothers in more simple and heartfelt ways just as Anna Jarvis felt that mothers day should be and one example is a blog post that was done by Minerva titled “Why Did God Create Mothers?|Happy Mother’s Day!!! May 11
There are the women who become step parents who should also be honored for their love of the children they are helping to raise and I invite you to read two blog posts 1. Is Mother’s Day for Me? written by Kristi B. and 2. When You Hate Mothers Day ( its not what you think) written by Holly
How can we not celebrate Mothers day without the traditional and cards that evoke emotions such as this one from Arlene
If you are giving a card ( home made or bought) then having the right words is important. Here are some famous quotes you might think about when celebrating Mother’s Day
A mother understands what a child does not say. ~ Jewish Proverb
I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life ~ Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President
A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.~ unknown
Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. ~ Sarah Malin
How many of you know what a “momism” means? Well every mother you will ever meet has a special quote, saying, that unforgettable tone in their voice when they give one liners to teach, scold or advise a child. These very special words have been used from generation to generation. Isn’t it the truth that while we hated hearing these words when we were kids, we now use them on our own children or grandchildren.
Here are just a few of these timeless sayings. Maybe when talking to your mom while celebrating mother’s day, remind her of some of these timeless sayings. By the way feel free to add your favorite momism to the list ( in the comment section below)
~ Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position ~
~ If you fall out of that tree and break you leg , don’t come running to me. ~
~ Get that thing out of your mouth! (or nose) ~
~ Who’ll end up walking, bathing and feeding it…? ~
~ This is why we can’t have nice things ~
~ Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been! ~
~ What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too? ~
and the most terrifying Mothers curse a child could ever hear
“I hope that when you grow up, you have kids “Just Like you”!”
To end this tribute to mothers around the world and a wonderful way of celebrating Mother’s Day – a song for all of you..
Thank you for being a mom!

Inspirational Corner and a well suited story celebrating Mothers Day
A Mother’s Love
A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:
For cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00
For going to the store for you: $.50
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25
Taking out the garbage: $1.00
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00
Total owed: $14.75
Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:
~For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: No Charge~
~For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge~
~For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years: No Charge~
~For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead: No Charge~
~For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose: No Charge~
~Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge.~
When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,”Mom, I sure do love you.” And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL”
