MOTHER'S DAY IS SUPPOSED TO COME every year the second Sunday in May. This Is alright as an official proclamation, but it may or may not be celebrated at just that time nt our house. It all depends on the state of the youngsters' proceeds from baby-sitting, whether or not the man of the houste is away for the opening of the fishing season which sometimes coincides with Mother's day, and whether or not Mother herself is involved in some project which rules out enough leisure to properly celebrate Mother's Day. THIS YEAH WILL BE MY nineteenth Mother's Day as a bonafide, birth certificates, picture-showing, mother. During these 19 years, I have had just about every kind of Mother's Day. <: -I: -f- THERE WAS THE FIRST TIME WHEN I received a lovely gift- wrapped package with an appropriate card. It was signed, "From Bill", but since our only child was then but five months old, I sort of suspected it came from my husband. * * * THEN THERE IS THAT FRAMED motto which still hangs on our kitchen wall. When daughter Mary Ann was about nine she was down to the city dump with her dad and she found this perfectly good picture; reading, "God Couldn't Be Everywhere, So He Sent Us Mothers." She wrapped it up and gave it to me for Mother's Day, and although it isn't exactly an artistic masterpiece, I shall always cherish it. THERE WAS THE MOTHER'S DAY 1 had breakfast in bed. Breakfast in bed is really not my idea of luxury and the few times I've had it there have mostly been wHen I was in the hospital following the births of our children. But the kids heard someplace that breakfast in bed is very luxurious for mothers so they fixed me coffoq, toast and orange juice and served it to rne about half-hour before I was ready to get up. The coffee was weak and a littlte cold, the toast crumbs got all over the bed and we were all a little late for Sunday School because the kids tried to clean up the kitchen before they got dressed. I loved that Mother's Day. * * * THEN THERE WAS THE YEAR OF luxury Mother's Day presents. From the whispered conferences after Bill received his paper boy pay, the reminders to Father that the daughters had no outside means of support besides their household chores tips, I thought my Mother's Day gift would at least be a mink stole. I was almost right. My gifts that year were extra special. There was a box of candy, of which I got to eat two or three pieces after passing it around, and therte were the earrings. I had been wanting some earrings for ever so long, but to buy such frivolities for myself when I needed a good cotton slip seemed to be the height of extravagence. But when I opened the package there they weiH5 ! Just the style I would have picked, and they were on a card with the price, $4.98 plainly marked on it ! I blanched a little, and 1 guess my kids know me pretty well. "Don't get worried about the price", they assured mo, "That $4.98 was for a set with necklace. They were on sale and we only paid 75 cents". I immediately felt better. * * )!: THERE HAVE BEEN.MOTHER'S DAYS when 1 didn't receive, any present at all. SometSrneythis klds'Were a little Bhomefaced^aboutitTbut Uiey, always explained that due to the high cost of living funds were not readily'available. I understood perfectly because I was operating under the same financial plan myc/elf. But the mother at our house has icr days, even is they don't always come the second Sunday in May. * * * IT WAS MOTHER'S DAY FOR me when our son, never demonstra- ive, at two years old looked up from the game we were playing and ,aid, "You know, I like you, Mom ! We have fun." It was Mother's )ay when one of the girls confided in me, "Some mothers are too strict; some let kids do anything they want to; you art* kind of in be- ween and maybe about right." * * * IT WAS MOTHER'S DAY FOR ME one March when our doctor looked up from examining our littlest one who had been terribly ill and said, "She is over the hump now. Go honle and go to bed." * ;!i * "* IT WAS MOTHER'S DAY LAST JUNE when our son got his scholar- ihip and his acceptance for college and it's Mother's Day for me right now when he writes from the University, "I've told so-and-so about you Mom, and he said he'd like to meet you." It's Mother's Day whenever I have all five of our family around the table these days in the ever-shortening times when we are together under one roof. * * * IT WAS MOTHER'S DAY ONE November when I came home from work to find the daughters had cleaned the house, straightened the kitchen cupboards and prepared supper, just because they knew I would be exhausted. * » * I EXPECT IT WILL BE TRULY Mother's Day when the kids are grown and married and bring my hoped-for grandchildren home for me to spoil. But, heaven forbid, if this never comes to pass, I shall still have had my moments. And they all add up to a pretty good record of Mother's Days. * * * A WHILE BACK, RAY N. BESCII of Minneapolis wrotte me requesting a copy of a poem he said I had in my column several years back. It was entitled, "What is a Parent". Mr. Besch says, "It is quite evident that this poem was considered by me to be outstanding for I remember it quite vividly after this period of time." I was pleased to receive life, letter and I would be more than happy to send him the column. The only drawback is that 1 can't find it. It's bothered me quite a bit, but although I have written quite a bit on parenthood, I don't think I ever wrote this particular one. Especially not in poetry. SOME POETRY I DID RECEIVE this wteek was written clear back in 1882 by a girl friend of my grandmother's ! It's in old-fashioned script and it tells the story of how Grandma met Grandpa. It seems her steady beau didn't show up at a party one night and another guy took her home. The latter was the orte she married. Many thanks to Mrs Harold Oxley of Renwick who saved this fur me and also some school and Sunday School cards Grandma received when she was a child. There was also a picture of my motiler at about U and one of my grandparents. Although I didn't see Mrs. Oxley, 1 was in Renwick this week to speak at a woman's club I enjoyed it very much. * * • THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Rhubarb Pudding Cake. i cups rhubarb cut in '/•; inch pieces 1 cup sugar '/» cup water 1 cup flour 1 teasp. salt '/a cup lard 23 cup sugar 1 egg \-i teasp. vanilla 2/3 cup milk Cook cut rhubarb in 1 cup sugar and ^ cup water, until tender, stirring frequently.
