HOSEZELL BLASH/Cot- ton City In celebration of Mother's Day around the United States and elsewhere, the typical message is similar: A mother's love is uncon- ditional. The love of a mother will never grow cold. Mothers are God's great creation. The hearts of mothers are as deep as the Grand Canyon...and so on. Regard- less of the sta- tus of moth- ers in life, most of them are well be- loved. On Mother's Day, that very special day, did you kiss her? Did you say, "I love you"? Do you re- member her as she sings in the heavenly choir? Mothers, qualified or not, play an important role in today's society. In fact, if we attempted to define or describe their numer- ous responsibilities, many will agree that mothers wear many dif- ferent hats. And they wear them very well. The mother is a dietician. She plans a variety of wholesome meals for her loving family to help them grow healthy. The mother is a waitress. She serves thousands of meals to her 'family and friends, over 1,008 meals a year--not counting snacks. The mother is a general prac- titioner. She treats the family ail- ments from braised knees to up- set stomachs such as indigestion. The mother might not be classi- fied legally as a pharmacist, yet she dispenses many band aids, child aspirins, iodine, rubbing alcohol and many more home remedies--without a prescription for her family The mother is an expert housekeeper. She cleans up, picks up, washes up and straight- ens up things, practically all day long. The mother could stand her ground with any lawyer or judge. She settles daily arguments among her own family, members that would seem to be easier to solve in a court of law The mother is a laundry worker  She battles;constantly,  rin ar0und the collar, for her husband and kids. That's the. love of a super mother! -The mother is a skilled seam- stress. For there seems to be no end to the clothes she patches, the buttons she sews on and the holes she darns for her family. The mother is a noted musi- cian. She might not read music or play the piano, but she sings sweet lullabies to soothe her ba- bies to sleep. Sometimes she might sing her husband to sleep. The mother is the "First Star- Teacher". She instructs her chil- dren in the first lessons of life: The Lord's Prayer, the ABCs, the first perceptions of right versus wrong, etc. The mother is a good beauti- -h BIRTHDAY LOve, Kay clan: To save money she clips and cuts hair as needed in the family. The mother could also be la- beled as an x-ray technician. She is an expert at seeing through flimsy excuses, small tales, eva- sions, cover-ups, and getting down to the nitty gritty in the household. The rflother is an engineer. She keeps the wheels of her household well oiled to run effi- ciently. Yes, she does all of these things and more too. She is a super mother! It is often said that if you want to keep, mother and wives happy, just shower them with many gifts and everything will be alright. Well, take caution rfien and husbands--I have a bit of bad news. 1. Don't buy them a set of car wrenches or kitchen tools. They will think you are trying to make them a "utility person". 2. Don't buy them expen- sive diamond rings. They'll claim that you are just wasting the fam- ily savings. 3. Don't rash to the Dollar Store and buy them fake dia- monds and pearls. They'll claim you are much too cheap. And they will certainly say, "I know I am worth more than that!" 4. Don't buy them too much chocolate candy. They'll claim that you are merely sweet- ening them up for the kill. 5. B e careful with those nuts. If you give them a box of nuts, whether they are peanuts, Brazil nuts or pecans, you are in for big trouble also. They will claim that you are trying to la- bel them as "nutty". You'll never get away with that, hus- bands ! The best gifts for Mother's Day from children, men, husbands and oth- ers-well, you figure that out. The answer is blowing in the wind. Happy Mother's Day toall of you.
