A Day In The Life Of A Mom . . . Priceless!

A man came home from work and found his 3 children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around the garden. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog.

Walking in the door, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall. In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel on. The family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked,
"What happened here today"?

She again smiled and answered, 
"You know every day when you come home from work 
and you ask me what in the world do I do all day. . ."?

''Yes," was his incredulous reply.  

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

“Eloquently presents the universal fear, sorrow, and suffering experienced by mothers whose lives have been profoundly affected by war.”

- Mary Tillman, mother of Pat Tillman killed in Afghanistan and co-author, Boots on the Ground by Dusk

“You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.” And, “The work of educating the world to peace is the woman’s job, because men have a natural fear of being classed as cowards if they oppose war.”
Jeanette Rankin, (1880-1973)

Many lyrics in National Anthems include phrases about war and remembrance.

The National Anthem of Canada  ~ O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

The National Anthem of the United States

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, 
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there: 

The National Anthem of the United Kingdom

Scatter her enemies,And make them fall:Confound their politics,Frustrate their knavish tricks,
