Mother’s Day falls on May 13th this year and I just want to take a few moments and recognize all our mothers.
If you’re a mother, thank you for your service! Once you are drafted into motherhood, your tour of duty is endless! No matter how old your child is, you are always his/her mother. There is NO retirement from motherhood.
When your children are young, you are an expert – the best thing since sliced bread. Somehow, between that stage and their adulthood, you lose a lot of intelligence. Just ask your kids!
Being a mom is like no other job in the world, and her job is never done. Unlike a typical 8-to-5 job, motherhood is a “career” often motivated by pure, unwavering love. While she’s responsible for so much, often it may feel as if she goes unappreciated, or at least under-appreciated.
If your mother has passed, treasure your memories. If she’s still part of your life, hold her close to you. Make her Mother’s Day something special.
I am blessed. I still have my mother – 88 years and going strong. I realize that there will come a time when I kiss her goodbye and she passes from this world to the next. I hope it’s a LONG way off!
Let’s reach out to all the moms in our lives and
remind them how loved and appreciated they are!
Happy Mother’s Day!!
