I can hardly remember what I had for breakfast today, but I clearly remember Captain Kangaroo telling me that "every day is Mother's Day." I took it in at a tender age and I'm glad I did. Thank you Captain!
I'm sending love to my mother today. She is no longer walking around on this Earth, but I know she can watch this clip with us. And I'm pretty sure she'll remember (like I do) that I always called her into the room with great excitement when the dancing bear came on the show. That was my favorite part. (As I recall, I could hardly contain my excitement – I wonder how old I was?) But I don't think my mother knew that this show taught me that everyday is Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. I am appreciating and honoring all you do with such great love.
