and my daughters; and I appreciate every woman who is a diligent and conscientious mother. They are one of the greatest gifts of God to the welfare of society. What would we do without them?
Now, having said that so there is no mistake about my attitude, it still is an irritation that merchandisers have imposed a day upon us when we must go through certain ritualistic observations or be thought to be cads and bounders. If I never express my appreciation to these wonderful women, then I am indeed a cad of the worst sort; but it irks me that I am forced to do at a particular time that which I try to do routinely, or be thought to be something that I am not.
