Musings from my inbox...

Why I love my Mom...




Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's
getting
late. I think I'll go to bed."


She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches.



Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper
the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar
container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee
pot
for brewing the next morning.



She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into
the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button!

She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on
the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.

She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to
dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by
the
desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the
field trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.

She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the
envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both
near
her purse.

Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night
solution
& age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed
her
nails.

Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."

"I'm on my way," she said.

She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then
made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on.

She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps
and
TV's, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had
a
brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.


In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next
day,
straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most
important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the
accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular. "I'm going to bed."

And he did...without another thought.

Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?

CAUSE WE ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL .... and we can't die sooner, we
still have things to do!

Send this to five phenomenal women today...I just did!

Then: GO TO BED!
