This Sunday is Mother's Day, a holiday created to honor those chicks who brought us into the world, and who have managed to put up with our monkeyshines since the umbilical cord was cut.
Everyone celebrates the holiday differently. Most go out to eat with their favorite older ladies, or at least make a heartfelt phone call, wishing them the best and thanking them for staying inside them rent-free for the better part of a year.
As for me, I will most likely spend my Mother's Day cooking and grilling for my mother with my brother and father. The trip to the gun range was bandied about, but I was overruled.
We found these vintage Mother's Day cards, proving that times may change, but the love for our mothers will never waver.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
