OUR VIEW: Spend a moment with mom

STILLWATER, Okla. — Mothers are unique.

They nurture. They encourage.

They make our favorite meals, and apply the bandages on the cuts and scrapes of life.

Today is Mothers Day — a day we remember the moms who are still here with us and those who live in our memories and everything we do.

The list would be much too long to print everything mothers teach us.

But here’s the short list of the lessons.

• Ask for help because no one has all the answers.

• If you will not do it for yourself, don’t expect others to do it for you.

• Clean up your messes.

• Always tell the truth.

• Admit when you are wrong.

• Don’t talk back to your elders.

• If you have something to give, share it.

• Watch what you say, or in today’s world, watch what you say, tweet, Facebook, etc.

• Finally, be dignified, respectful and tolerant of others.

Today is Mothers Day.

If your mom is still around, give her a call or go home and spend a few hours with her.

If your mom lives in your memory, take a few minutes to recall those favorite memories and thank her with your smile.
