Motherhood: the most under-appreciated profession of all time. It used to be that in a family, the husband went to work while the wife stayed home to maintain the house and raise the children. She cooked, she cleaned, she kissed boo-boos, and she was always there. Today, the family may look a bit different, with husband and wife sharing work and child-rearing responsibilities, but that same nurturing, compassionate woman helps her children every day, regardless of what else she may be responsible for.
In today’s modern world, some argue that being a stay-at-home mom is not a “job”. It’s not….it’s many jobs. A mother is a nanny, a maid, a CEO, a chef, an administrative assistant. Let’s appreciate and recognize all mothers this Mother’s Day, whether or not they are still with us. Take time to thank your mom for all the sacrifices she made for you over the years that shaped you into the person you are today.
Mothers and grandmothers…thank you for all that you do for your progeny. The sacrifices may not ever be fully realized, but you do it anyway, because you love your children and your grandchildren. They love you, as well.
Happy Mother’s Day!
