A tip of the hat to mothers everywhere

Mothers Day should be everyday, says letter writer

I take my hat of to every Mother!

What do I mean? Let me tell you.

My name is Gerd Trubenbach and three weeks ago I was thrusted into the role of

Grandfather.

A father, does not realize, how much work, his wife does, with one or more children.

Have to get up, make breakfast, brush your teeth, after going to the washroom, did you wash your hands?

Make the bed, put the wash in the machine.

Than into the dryer, summertime outside on the line.

Later comes lunch, what to make, pm, nap time.

Wash the dishes, dry and put away.

Go shopping, hold my hand, do not touch that.

Back home, comes playtime.

Then fold the laundry and put away.

Wash the floor, vacuum the house.

Now dinnertime, later story time, than to bed.

As I said above, there is a lot of work in a women’s day,

Ladies, Mothers I take my hat off in honor to YOU.

Cheers and it’s not Mothers Day yet, but it should be everyday
