thaNk reaLLy tOuched my heaRt ;p


After 21 years of marriage,
my wife wanted me to take
another woman out to dinner and a movie.

She said, 'I love you,but
I know this other woman loves you
and would Love to spendsome time with you.

The other woman that my wife
wanted me to visit was my Mother,
who has been a widow for 19 years,
but the demands of my work and
my three children had made it possible
to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her
to go out for dinnerand a movie.
'What's wrong,are you well,' she asked?

My mother is the type of woman who suspects
that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.
'I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,'
I responded 'just the two of us.

'She thought about it for a moment, and
then said, 'I would like that verymuch'

That Friday after work,
as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous..
When I arrived at her house, I noticed that
she, too,seemed to be nervous about our date.

She waited in the door with her coat on.
She had curled her hair and was wearing
the dress that she had worn to celebrate her
last wedding anniversary.

She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel's.
'I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son,
and they were impressed,' she said, as she got into the car.
'They can't wait to hear about our meeting'

We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant,
was very nice and cozy.
My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady.
After we sat down, I had to read the menu.
Her eyes could only read large print.
Half-way through the entrees,I lifted my eyes and saw
Mother sitting there staring at me.
A nostalgic smile was on her lips.

'It was I who used to have to read the menu
when you weresmall,' she said.
'Then it's time that you relax and
let me return the favor,' I responded.
During the dinner , we had an agreeable
conversation nothing extraordinary but
catching up on recent events of each other's life.
We talked so much that we missed the movie.

As we arrived at her house later, she said,
'I'll go out with you again, but only ifyou let me invite you.'
I agreed.'How was your dinner date?'
asked my wife when I got home.
'Very nice, much more so than I could have imagined,' I answered.

A few days later, my mother died of
a massive heart attack.
It happened so suddenly that
I didn't have a chance to do anything for her.

Sometime later, I received an envelope
with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same place
Mother and I had dined.

An attached note said:
'I paid this bill in advance.
I wasn't sure that I could be there;
but, nevertheless, I paid for two plates,
one for you and the other for your wife.
You will never know what that night meant for me.

'I love you, son'

At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time:
'I loveYOU'and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve.
Nothing in life is more important than your family.
Give them the time they deserve,
because these things cannot be put off till some 'other' time.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks
to get back to normal after you've had a baby...
doesn't know that once you're amother,
'normal' is history.

Somebody said you can't love the second child
as much as you love the first...
doesn't have two or more children.

Somebody said the hardest part of
being a mother is labor and delivery....
never watched her 'baby'get on the bus
for the first day of kindergarten...
or on a plane headed for military 'boot camp.

Somebody said a Mother can stop worrying
after her child gets married...
doesn't know that marriage adds
a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.

Somebody said a mother's job is done
when her last child leaves home...
never had grandchildren..

Somebodysaid your mother knows you love her,
so you don't need to tell her...
isn't a mother.
