Thursday, my mom and dad joined us for dinner. Prior to coming mom had to get some things at Sams. She arrived with some very tasty bread to go with our soup, a painting I'd asked her to pick up for me from a thrift shop, and NEW FUZZY PJs!
If you have a one that takes care of you, even though you're all grown up, you know how I felt about those new pajamas. She didn't know it, but I really did need a new pair. They are red. And they are fuzzy. And they just made me feel so filled up in side. Can't wait to put them on again tonight!
We never outgrow our need for mom, do we? We never get over needing to be cared for.
Your mom may be near, far, or gone. But think about her or mom-figures in your life. What comes to mind?

Two suggestions, if you've been blessed by a good woman in your life:
1. Send that person a little note of thanks today. (Mom, this one's yours.
- 2. Consider how YOU could do the same for another woman in your life - your
- own child, a young single woman, a young mother you know whose
- folks are far away, a widow, etc.
I still call my mom "Mommy" - how about you?
