Mother’s’ Day 2017…

leave a comment »

Patrice Lewis  raises an  interesting question:  is it mother’s or women’s day?   I favor Mother’s Day,  because that’s what it was established for and mothers hold a unique place,  at least in the Western world.   So-called feminists are fond of sneeringly calling actual mothers “breeders”, yet that epithet is reserved for Western women,  and applied even more enthusiastically to Christian women,  whereas they have nothing to say about the women and girls who suffer under shariah and Islam,  and who are,  in fact,  breeders so far as their society’s males are concerned.

Jesus was a  big fan  of children,  as well as their mothers,  which is but one reason progressives and our previous president so despise those of us who cling to our God,  guns —  you know the rest.

A mother of the  duck variety  and all but one of her brood were rescued from a swimming pool and escorted to a nearby lake by a group of volunteers.

This little autistic boy’s parents fell down on their job, but a Kansas policeman stepped up and  saved the  child.

I was invited to a mother’s day luncheon by a family member and happily went and had great food and a wonderful time with everyone.  I hope all of you were as fortunate.

Mother’s Day 2016…

I trust your Mother’s Day was not merely pleasant,  but downright enjoyable.   The celebration I attended certainly was,  with various mothers in my family,  and their spouses and children.   Our hostess kept it light because of the heat,  and it was relaxing and fun.

If you have the misfortune to live in Chicago,  chances are your day wasn’t so pleasant.

Happy Mother’s Day 2015…

Unlike Hillary Clinton,  Paula Bolyard was happy to  stay at home  with her children and bake cookies,  and tells us why.

Debby Witt (Jonah Goldberg’s Odd Links gal from The Corner) has a series of entertaining links  here.

Leave it to an environmental writer to  scold you  for daring give your Mom commercially grown flowers WHICH DAMAGES MOTHER EARTH!!!!!

Ignore the eco-Nazi and enjoy  some cartoons.

I hope your Mother’s Day was as enjoyable as mine.

UPDATE:  And here’s a very,  very late  Mother’s Day gift.

ISIS after cakes…

leave a comment »

Now ISIS is roaming markets in eastern Syria,  confiscating molds for Mother’s Day cakes,  since it considers  that celebration  a heresy.   Even more interesting is that ISIS has been subject to hit-and-run shootings in the area.

Mother’s Day 2013…

leave a comment »

Be thankful for good mothers,  because they are a foundation of civilization.   Here are some charming specimens.

I chose early in life not to be a mother,  which as it turned out,  would have been difficult for me to achieve anyway.  But I am quite happily an aunt and great-aunt,  and called aunt by a number of people who are not any blood kin to me,  but regard me with affection.   Families matter,  which is one reason the Left seeks to destroy them.   Have a very happy Mother’s Day to spite them!

is still a day for campaigning for His Oneness.  If anybody had sent me  a Mother’s Day e-card  from ObamaCare,  I’d hunt him down and inflict serious injury.  No less would be deserved for such a tasteless,  tacky act.
