Have you ever wondered the true purpose for Mother's Day? Most people would say it to say "thank you" to one's mother for providing a lifetime of support. I think it was a day designed to give mothesr a one-day vacation because Father's Day is just around the corner and most mothers work diligently to provide a special meal for their spouses. Those meals often entail a barbacue and, when prepared correctly, consists of marinated grilled meat along with corn on the cob, various side salads, and a scrumptious dessert. Preparations can take several days and are more challenging as men have large appetites. Mothers works so hard preparing this meal that they earn a "free" day the following May!
