It’s Mother’s Day today in many countries around the world. Many more countries have already or will soon be honoring mothers everywhere. Moms are important! Whether the moms you’re celebrating today are your biological, adopted, step, honorary, grand, great-grand, friends, cousins, or otherwise admired mothers, they’ve played a critical role in ensuring that a) there will be children and b) those children are (usually) at least somewhat civilized. I’ve watched my own moms and all the moms in my circles parent kids, and I’m incredibly grateful to them for doing that tough job. Some of them even do it mostly alone, which is even tougher! Massive respect, Moms!
Mother’s Day is only a week away, my darlings! Did you get the mom/moms in your life something yet? If you didn’t, never fear! You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your present location to get her something nice.
Mother’s Day is May 10th. Do you need a gift for a mom or many moms? Are you looking for something funny, something geology related, something with garnets, and/or something really soft and awesome? I’ve got you covered right here!
For the mom(s) with a wicked sense of humor, there’s still Holy Schist! It’s blessed by your own Right Irreverend Dana Hunter, and has definitely got garnets in.
It’s a good thing the teevee commercials mentioned what day it is. Not that we should limit our appreciation of our mothers to one day out of the year.
I’ve been blessed with not one, but two, magnificent moms. They bear no responsibility for my more neurotic traits. They deserve a lion’s share of the credit for getting me to my 30s alive, well, and self-sufficient.
