Happy Mom Day to my wife, to the mother of my children, to my daughters who are marvelous moms, to mi mama Margarita, and Grandmas.

Mother knows best. She is a superhero with extra strengths and undying love. Health and happiness lie at the feet of our mothers. Let us be reminded of how they became the pillar of support in our victories and especially during our unfortunate downfalls.

I recall the advice my mother and grandmothers would share with me and if it not to save face, I will post them on cyberspace.
