Mothers day here in Australia, was the 10th of May. I received some lovely Lillies from second son and first son gave me a portable drive for backing up my pooter pictures and documents. Wonderful gifts. Thank you boys. Inside one of the cards was a cutting from a newspaper which is so lovely and thought provoking, I would like to share it with you. So here goes....
And when it comes to the way we think about our mothers, the stages of life can generally be summarised as follows:
- 4 Years of age: "My mummy can do anything."
- 8 Years of age: "My mum knows everything. She's better than your mum."
- 12 Years of age: "My mum knows a fair bit but she doesn't know everything."
- 14 Years of age: "Mum thinks she knows everything but she knows nothing."
- 16 Years of age: "Mum's such a dag. She's got no idea about anything."
- 18 Years of age: "Mum's so far out of date and out of touch, She's got a lot to learn."
- 25 Years of age: "Mum's got a few good ideas, she seems to have picked up a few over the years."
- 35 Years of age: "Before we decide, let's get Mum's opinion."
- 45 Years of age: "Wonder what Mum would have thought about it."
- 65 Years of age: "Wish I could talk it over with Mum."
I remember each one of these "ages" except for the last two. Thankfully at almost 60 Years of age My Mum is still here with us and I speak to her everyday, usually for advice. TO ALL THE MUMS OUT THERE, THANK YOU.
