THOUGHTS FROM DR. JOE by Dr. Joe Puglia After the flowers, the ceramic hand prints, the Sunday brunch, dinner, and lunch, we are left, if we are lucky, with only recollections and memories of who is this special lady who nurtured our soul and created our very existence. The tables are cleared, the flowers are wilted and our world changes daily as it turns on its axis; but one thing for sure, nobody loves 'ya like your 'mum.' It's after Mother's Day and once again I see the truth to the ol' adage, "Too bad youth is wasted on the young" or, better said, "When do we learn to grasp the sanctity of motherhood and appreciate the magnitude of her contribution?"

I'm looking forward to visiting a sweet group of local children who are going to make cookies for a Mother's Day program. It should be a cheerful, uplifting experience. I need one. My best friend lost her mother last month. "Mother's Day is nearly here. It will be my first without my mom," she said to me a few days ago. I listened to my friend as she spoke about beginning the task of sorting through her mother's things. "I walked through her house. It's all clean and tidy.

Mother’s Day. It’s a tough time for me. But I am surrounded by love. I like the presents. This year, Rachel gave me a lavender plant, in a beautiful pot. When I look at it, I think of her. And in my purse, I still have the pen, the one that Andrew gave me for Mother’s Day, the year before he died. On Mother’s Day I think about both my children. This year, there are other concerns. The economy. Our quest to fix things. To repair the world, one disease at a time.

Just three shopping days are left until one of the most important holidays on our calendar, Mother’s Day. OK, I might be overstating its importance, but how many of us have had the nerve to ignore our mothers on the single day of the year set aside especially for them? Not me. Not Gil. Our dear, departed mothers — and grandmothers — got plenty of attention from us as the second Sunday of May arrived. We knew all too well who had buttered our bread and wanted to make sure they felt appreciated.
