Happy Mother

A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.

He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.

But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars."

The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I'll buy you a rose."

He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother's flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home.

She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother."

She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother's house.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!
Whether you are a Mom....or celebrating your mom! Don't feel bad that you forgot to buy a card or send flowers. Pick up the phone and call your mom and tell here how much she means to you! I guarantee......she'll never forget it!

I know there will be some inspirational reading on here today....here are a few that I've read already that have touched my heart.

I wish it was only 200 miles to my mother's house, I would love to deliver flowers in person. A phone call will be the best that I can do.

Thanks for the story, it was sweet and caring... sort of like you Angel!

VAT.....my mom is too far away too. And since I'm recuperating from surgery, I couldn't go anyways! But you know how much your phone call will mean to her! Just don't forget!

Happy Mother's Day, Angel!

I have never before celebrated Mother's Day. But,now that my mother is gone, that is no longer a possibility.

So many people here express so many good things about their family members. I sometimes wish I had been closer to my family.

Take Care,

Jon C.

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/14/2006 3:35 pm:
Thank you Jon! I'm sorry your mother is gone.....but she still lives inside your memories! Thanks for being such a caring person.

Mycin.....oh sweetie...I'm sorry. But I'm glad that she is still alive in your memories, and that you still honor her with the flowers. Its a rather nice, peaceful feeling when we feel like we can still pour our heart out to a loved one thats gone, isn't it? I know she is proud of you.

Unlistedone.....thank you my special friend. Yes, it was a very special day. Actually everyday has become a special day here. Just a week ago....I thought about possibly not being here on mother's day....and what that would do to my children. And my grandchildren. So, I am especially thankful this year......just to enjoy the simple things. And to be thankful for the special friends like you. 143 wamhfaf

"Happy Mother's Day,

I'm sure, at your home, this was a "very special" Mother's Day.
Everyday should be mother's day.

I sent my mom an e-mail. Not the usual type. I put in fancy background, used different colors & sizes and put in a musical sound. Basically, I made her a greeting card!

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 5:20 am:
Paul....you know, I love e-cards. Sometimes I wish my mom was computer savvy...and I could send her one every day! I'm sure your mom loved it!
