September 18th Wife Appreciation Day

While celebrated on September 18th officially, today really should be appreciated every day of the year. Wives make homes and families possible, no matter how much many men try to get the job done, they are not anywhere as capable as most women. While we have Mother’s Day not all wives are mothers, so we should celebrate them for who they are, not what they are. Even if they are mothers they still deserve the thanks and appreciation from their mates and families. Today is always celebrated on the third Sunday in September.

How to celebrate – Appreciate your wife. Take your wife to dinner, no kids, just her. Try and make your wife’s day as easy as you can.

February 1st Spunky Old Broads Day

The motto for the day is, “Women are like fine wines, they both get better with age.” Dr. Gayle Carson created today back in 2002. Not only did it have it’s own day created but February is S.O.B. (Spunky Old Broads) month. It even has an S.O.B. of the year of which the likes of Cloris Leachman and Dolly Parton have won. Do you know an S.O.B.? They are all over the place, fun to be with and you never know what they might do next!

How to celebrate – Do you have an S.O.B. in your life? If not, find one! Don’t just get old, fight back! How many S.O.B.’s can you name?

May 10th Mother’s Day

Where would we be without our mothers? Well, we wouldn’t even BE without our mothers. There is a special bond between mother and child, one the mother never outgrows and the child realizes far too often after the mother is older or passed. Motherhood is amazing. It does prove that women are the stronger sex. I have dozens of stories about motherhood, about my own mother and my wife as a mother. I will not go into them here now because I am sure you have your own stories to tell, just make sure they get told, and that they are told before it’s too late. Though Mother’s Day had many starts before becoming national, it’s official birthday is May 10th, 1908 in Philadelphia.

How to celebrate – Honor your mother today. Don’t forget the flowers and candy, but mainly… don’t forget to thank them. Start a scrapbook of you and your mother.

May 12th Mother’s Day

The one person we really do everything to is our mother. Of course their are good mothers and bad mothers but she is where life begins and without her, none of us would be here. Today is the day we set aside to honor her since the first Mother’s Day in 1908 in Philadelphia. But really we should honor her every day. The day always falls the 2nd Sunday in May so the date may change but the idea of it never does. And really, today shouldn’t be restricted to just one day, it should be every day of the year. Whether it is Mother Nature, the Mother of Invention or just your own mom, honor her for all she has given you since before you were even born.

How to celebrate – Let your mom know you love her. Take your mom someplace special today. Make something for your mom just like you did when you were young. (It will mean more)
