ἀλλά με σός τε πόθος σά τε μήδεα, φαίδιμ᾿ Ὀδυσσεῦ,σή τ᾿ ἀγανοφροσύνη μελιηδέα θυμὸν ἀπηύρα.
Ὀδύσσεια λ, 202, Ὅμηρος.
No, it was longing for you, and for your counsels, glorious Odysseus, and for your gentle-heartedness, that robbed me of honey-sweet life.
Odyssey Book XI, Homer.
Take heed from Homer and Odysseus. For Mother’s Day, don’t forget your mother. She misses you like Anticleia misses her own child, Odysseus. Don’t wait telling her how much you appreciate her. Appreciate her on Mother’s Day, and every day of the year before it is too late.
