yes i know there's father's day there's also grandparents day. all i believe are foolish. I mean all have birthdays and most people celebrate some other type of holiday so that's enough celebration for the family. (i don't even celebrate my own birthday that's just info tossed in)
In a way, I almost agree with jim993. It's too bad we need a special day, even a birthday, to show another human being, especially one that means and has meant so much too us, how much we appreciate them. I guess it's another sign of the times that we are too busy on a daily or weekly basis to do this. Too bad, so sad. Another negative aspect is whether "forced" appreciation, is really "true" appreciation. So goes life in our times. ???
its not really forced its just condensed. so all those times you forgot to say thanks for her making your lunch or doing the other 1000's of things moms do, you can make it up. but i may be wrong ta think my mom deserves a day when she can laze about and me an my dad do all the stuff she usually does and then we treat her out to supper.
