Why I Love Mom!

I got this email in my inbox about a week ago, and just read it today. Thought you ladies would enjoy it.


Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting
late. I think I'll go to bed".

She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches.
Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the
following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar
container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for
brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a
load of clothes in to the washer , ironed a shirt and secured a loose
button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back
on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.. She watered the
plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the
desk, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip,
and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair
She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope
and wrote a quick note for the grocery store.. She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution &
age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her

Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."

"I'm on my way," she said

She put some water into the dog's dish then made sure the doors were locked
and the patio light was on.

She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and
TV's , hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a
brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room,
she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the
shoe rack.. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do
list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular. "I'm going to bed" And he did..without another thought.

Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?
Cause we are made for the long haul....(and we can't die sooner, we still
have things to do!!!!)
