|Mom with Me|
My Mother has been gone for many years now, but I still miss her. Not a day goes by that I don't think of my Mom. No one loves so unconditionally as a Mother does. Countless times over the years, I have wished I could pick up the phone and call my Mom just to talk or to get advice on simple how-tos.

Well, guess what? Finally, after all these years I have found a new Mom! Sure, she's not as loving and pretty as my real Mom was. My new Mom is saucy, sassy and somewhat shocking. Not only does she help me, but she helps millions of other souls out there. She's quite a giver, you see. You might have heard of her. Her name is: The Internet, aka The World Wide Web...but I call her...Mom.
Wanna know how get a stain out? My Mom, The Internet knows. Have a question about the proper way to sew on a button? My new Mom has all the answers. Need a recipe for making a white sauce? She'll show you a million different ways to do it.

You may ask:
Do my new Mom and I have fun together? You better believe it! We can go shopping together right in the comfort of my own home!
Can I show up anytime and lounge around on her couch? No, but I can lounge around on my own couch and talk to her all I want. "Hi Mom! Time to watch Oprah together!"

Can we go out for coffee together? Yes!!! Starbucks it is, Mom! We can even go to lunch at Panera!
Will she take my kid to school or babysit? No? I don't have a small child, so who cares. Anyway, she spends lots of time with my adult daughter and her Grand dog.
Will she be there for me anytime? Well, yeah, unless the power goes out. Indeed, what human could ever be there for someone 24/7? This Mom won't be around if I become destitute and homeless, which is perfectly understandable. Why should that sweet lady have to endure the embarrassment of being around a kid who is that much of a loser?
Will she worry about me and give me advice? Mom's not much of a worrier, but she's got advice out the wazoo if I ask.
Does my new Mom remember my birthday? Yes.
How about the events on the day of my birth? Not the details, and anyway who wants that? My real Mom almost died having me.
