If there is something one cannot do without, it is mother. Father loves her, daughters imitates her, son ignores her, salesmen thrive on her, motorists hurry around her, teachers phone her, and the woman next door confides on her.
She can be sweeter than sugar, more sour than a lemon, all smiles, and crying her heart out - all within any given two-minute period.
She likes sewing, detective stories, having her birthday remembered, church, a new dress, the cleaning woman, father's praise, a little lipstick, flowers and plants, dinner out on Sunday, one whole day in bed, crossword puzzles, sunny days, tea, and the newspaper boy.
She dislikes doing the dishes, father's boss, having her birthday forgotten, the motorists behind her, spring cleaning, Junior's report card, rainy days, the neighbor's dog, stairs, and the man who has supposed to cut the grass.
She can be found standing by, bending over, reaching for, kneeling under, and stretching around, but rarely sitting on.
She has the beauty of a spring day, the patient of a saint, the appetite of a small bird, the memory of a large elephant.
She knows the lowest prices, everybody's birthday, what you should be doing, and all your secret thoughts.
She is always straightening up after, reminding you to, and taking care of, but never asking for.
Yes, a mother is one thing that nobody an do without. And when you have harassed her, buffeted her about, tried her patience, and worn her out, and it seems that the end of the world is about to descend upon you, then you can win her back with just four little words, " Mom, I love you. "

A belated piece for my mama on her birthday (October 9).
I love you, Ma!
