Today is Lost Sock Memorial Day. How many of you knew that? Only a chiropodist or podiatrist would know such a fact! It is one of those obscure holidays that acknowledges that you have a drawer full of unmatched socks. Were they eaten by the washer or the dryer? Each unmatched sock represents a missing sock. But for some reason we never discard the lone sock – after all, its match may magically show up some day.
This year May 9th also happens to be Mother’s Day – a much more significant holiday to celebrate. I would suggest you spend the rest of your day appreciating your mother for all that she has done. She is the reason you are here. It is a time to reflect on how much your mother has influenced your life and shaped your destiny. I know for me, my mother has been, and continues to be, a guiding force in my life. Mom, you’re the best!
