Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Sunday, May 13, 2007

To all of you out there who are mothers we wish you a wonderful day today.

May you be greeted with hugs and kisses and maybe even breakfast in bed.

May today be about YOU, with you getting to make the plans for the day.

May you hear from your children if they are not at home,
and if for some reason you don't, remember they still do love you no matter what.

May something today put a smile on your face - at least twice.

My MOM and dad are with their middle child,
brother Richard, and his family
in San Antonio.

This is mom and dad on their wedding day 54 years ago
(ummm or is it 55???)

Mom is a cancer survivor, having fought the fight with non-hodgkins lymphoma
She has always been a fighter, and always taught us right from wrong.

Her love for her three children is boundless.
She is an incredibly strong woman and had taught us how to be tough at all times,
but to also show the soft side, that you can be tough, but loving.

We said this just a few days ago on her birthday, but you can never say it enough

    You've done a wonderful job and raised loving children. All a mother can hope for.
