Aiken Standard (Newspaper) - May 6, 1993, Aiken, South Carolina Page 6 Aiken Standard, Aiken, S.C., Thursday, May 6, 1993 Saying I Love You’ May Be Best Gift Of All By NINA J. NIDIFFER Staff Writer Mom is a wonderful woman, isn’t she? She deserves her heart’s desire on Mother’s Day. She knows you would make her dreams come true if you could But mothers are realistic people. They know their kids — especially the young ones — probably can’t afford to give candy, cards and flowers, much less vacations, jewelry and fancy cars. An allowance only goes so far. Don’t worry. If you really want to show your mother you love her on her special day, you don’t have to spend huge amounts of cash. If you can, and you want to, that’s nice, but there are other ways of showing affection. Most of them don’t cost a cent They call for an investment of time, thoughtfulness and caring instead. Store-bought cards are pretty, but the one closest to mom’s heart will probably be the one you made for her with your own paint smeared, glue-sticky hands. A card like that might go up on the refrigerator for everyone to see before it’s tucked into a keepsake album. Money can’t buy it. Mom knows that. That’s why she’ll keep it Candy is sweet, but not as sweet as the words “I love you, Mom.” Don’t assume she knows you love her. She probably does, but don’t assume it, Tell her. If you want to be more specific, write your mother a letter telling her why you love her. Show her she is appreciated. Remember all the little things she does for you, and all the big things, too. Tell her “thankyou.” Sylvia Kennerly says her grown son will always be her "little boy." Most Moms Don’t Have Regrets By NINA J. NIDIFFER Staff Writer When Sylvia Kennerly told her husband Gordon they were expecting a baby back in 1972, she was nill of apprehension at the thought of bringing up a child. But before she knew it, fear of the unknown had turned to delight. The day of her son’s birth was nothing short of a miracle to her. More than 20 years later, Mrs. Kennerly doesn’t know where all those years have gone. Her son Lewis is a grown man. He’s in college, making his own decisions, following his own life. But grown or not, he will always be her little boy. Mrs. Kennerly suspects most mothers feel the same way. “I didn’t go back to work until Lewis was old enough to go to school. He would come to my office in the afternoon and sit under a table to do his homework,’’ she said. “That’s the way I still see him. I know he’s grown. He’s in college now. But no matter how old your child gets, you still feel responsible for him in some ways. You never grow out of your concern for him.” While she watched her son grow up, Mrs. Kennerly knew she was maturing, too. The responsibility of a child is a fast way to realize priorities. “Having a child is a maturing experience. You’ll grow up fast if you weren’t mature already,” she said. “But ifs also a joy. The years of Lewis growing up are full of good memories. It’s hard to explain unless you are a mother, but he was always the apple of my eye, just like I’m still my mother’s little girl. “Being a mother is an experience I wouldn’t trade for the world.” Now Grasshoppers Will Make You Feel Comfortable Iven When They’re Not On Your Feet.
