Why God Made Mothers

 

…how time flies…blink, and we’re now well into May.

My days have been jam packed with fun, and the not-so-fun…in other words, life. One of the funs is my continued love of taking photos.  Today, to wish my sweet bloggie friends a Happy Mother’s Day, I’ll share a few of those photos taken of my flowers.

But with a little humorous twist…

You’ve all probably seen this somewhere along life’s path, but it’s just too stinkin’ cute not to share again. It’s entitled: Why God Made Mothers. The answers were given by second graders. Enjoy…

 WHY DID GOD MAKE MOTHERS?

1. She’s the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

HOW DID GOD MAKE MOTHERS?

 1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
 2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
 3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger 
parts.

 WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE MOTHERS MADE OF?

1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in
the world and one dab of mean. ha ha ha
2. They had to get their start from men’s bones. Then they mostly use 
string, I think.

 WHY DID GOD GIVE YOU YOUR MOTHER AND NOT SOME OTHER MOTHER?

 1. We’re related.
 2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people’s mom like me.

 WHAT KIND OF LITTLE GIRL WAS YOUR MOM?

 1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
 2. I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but my guess would be pretty 
bossy.
 3. They say she used to be nice.

WHAT DID MOM NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DAD BEFORE SHE MARRIED HIM?

 1. His last name.
 2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk 
on beer?
 3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to 
chores?
{{having been a former elementary school teacher in one of my lives, i can attest to the fact that these answers are mild compared to what many teachers hear!}}

 WHY DID YOUR MOM MARRY YOUR DAD?

 1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mom eats a lot
 2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
 3. My grandma says that mom didn’t have her thinking cap on.

 WHO’S THE BOSS AT YOUR HOUSE?

 1. Mom doesn’t want to be boss, but she has to because dad’s such a goof 
ball.
 2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the 
bed.
 3. I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

 WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOMS AND DADS?

1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work. 

2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power ’cause 
that’s who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine..

WHAT DOES YOUR MOM DO IN HER SPARE TIME?

 1. Mothers don’t do spare time.
 2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO MAKE YOUR MOM PERFECT?

 1. On the inside she’s already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of 
plastic surgery.
 2. Diet. You know, her hair. I’d diet, maybe blue.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT YOUR MOM, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

 1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I’d get rid 
of that.
 2. I’d make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did 
it not me.
 3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of 
her head.

Here’s sending out loads of gratitude to all the mothers of the world, and those who practice the gentle art of mothering {a trait found in many women who never had their own biological children}, the world is a sweeter place because of you.

And special hugs and whispered prayers for the precious hearts that for a number of reasons, find this day extra hard. May grace give you the strength you need…

Xo, Sue
