M-O-T-H-E-R

M is for the Million things she gave me…

 

 

O means Only that she’s growing old

 

 

T is for the Tears she shed to save me

 

 

H is for her Heart of purest gold

 

 

E is for her Eyes with love-light shining,

 

 

R is Right and right she’ll always be.

 

 

Put them all together, they spell “Mother,”

 

 

A word that means the world to me.

–Howard Johnson, 1915

  1. Great, once Hallmark sees this they’re going to try and hire you for their, “2R-1M”(Two Roberts 1 Mantlo) line of greeting cards and while I am sure they will indeed freak us all out, we’ll be missing out on our weekly face kicks. First Campbell then soon after, Sims.

  2. Here’s hoping that you have many more Mother’s Days with your mom. I hope she’s doing better these days.

  3. My fear — which turned out to be wholly irrational — is that one of the panels would be the splash page of Heroes Reborn Avengers #1, in which the Enchantress, referring to the Scarlet Witch, says, “She who art mine daughter!” As I recall, Jim Valentino considered that a stroke of genius right up until the rioting began.

    Anyway, thanks for the Heroes Reborn-free Mother’s Day! Would that they could all be so.
