The Mothers Day I will never forget:
When I was a single dad with three children back in the early 90's I will never forget going to church(First Baptist, Jackson MS) in 1990 on Mothers Day.
Our family was well known in our church (the dad with 3 children), so after I dropped all of the kids in their prospective Sunday school rooms I headed to the main sanctuary for Sunday service. Our church had a tradition that went back 50+ years; all Mom's were given an orchard corsage on Mothers Day.
I was standing in line to enter the sanctuary for the service, it was taking a little longer than normal as the corsages were being given to the "Mom's" as they entered the sanctuary. As I reached the front of the line I was surprised when I was handed a Rose boutonniere with three Sweetheart roses, one for each of my children. I wore it proudly all day and I still have it pressed between some pages in my old bible.
So to all Mom's (even us male Mom's) Happy Mothers Day!
