Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and mother figures. This is a special day for some special people.

Alabama Coach Paul Bear Bryant once made a commercial for Central Bell Telephone Company in which he asked, “Have you called your mama today?” Coach Bryant continues with a statement the still resonates with many people: “I sure wish I could call mine.”
