I admire all the troops over in iraq. they have given up so much to fight for our country and so many have lost there lives over this. If anyone is in the army or other troops that are or have been in iraq then thank you. Until they all come home... Rest in peace for those who gave their lives...

That is lovely, how caring of you. Unfortunatly more troups are even now being sent off to fight in a war that is really someone elses and so many of them will be injured or die. I think the people who join the forces are very brave as they give their lives because their county asks them too whether they agree with the cause or not.

Animals are probably far better than us and are definately better behaved. Your reasoning with God sounds a bit like mine, as for people who tell us it is right to use violence to protect us - well nuff said really. Thank-you for your reply - I appreciate your honesty.

I admire GOD the most. Than my mom & son. But too mee there is noo comparison between my mom & my son. My mom is an elderly women in her early 80's & we both help take care of her. GOD is number 1 for the fact is, I know if soomething ever happens to me God wll watch over them. or if something happens to one of them GOD will be there.

Mothers--in general. They do so much for society and get almost no recognition. They raise children, take care of a household, many take care of finances in the family, some work at home, some work outside the home. They are responsible for bringing up the next generation that will someday run countries. It is an awesome responsability, whether they take it seriously or not.

You are so right, we are amazing! I do charity stuff, help at school, raise 2 boys, 1 with special needs, am studying to work from home and do all my partners business paperwork and the housework, it's amazing what I get done some days and most of the time I never even realise what I've done. Thank-you so much for your kind comment.

Well, I'm a mother of 4 myself. I don't think I'm even living up to my own comment. I just don't have the energy. But I try. I really admire the moms, like you, that seem to go the extra mile. Right now I'm focusing on just making it through each day without the kids maiming each other, lol. (It really isn't that bad but some days feel that way).

I'm sure you have at least twice as much you have to do as me and you do a lot better than you credit yourself with! It's not easy being a mum and no-one notices when we're down. My home is always messy and often trashed. Things are constantly broken and the washing and ironing is horrendous with just 2 to deal with. I do 1 day at a time , if it can wait today it'll do tomorrow. During the summer my boys fought so much there was always screaming in my house, occasionally even my partners although mine could be heard down the lane several times a week. I am not a fantastic mum by any means but I do what I can. If you are really fed up you can always send me an e-mail and I'll have a mutual whinge if you want. I'm sure you're doing fine!!!

That is so true, mother nature has given us all, humans and animals such a beautiful place to start from, shame we seem to be destroying her loving work with our progress.

All the mothers in the world. They deserve the recognition for all the sacrifices they endured to guide us along the way and for us to become who we are now. We should all respect our mothers as our family won't be intact and united if not through them.

Thank-you - I'm a mum and it's great to be recognised as worthwhile occupation. I think mums are Angels - I know mine is - and little goddess's rolled into one. The world can come and go but Mum's always try to be there when it's important, I do anyway.
