" A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people , promptly announces she never did like pie." Tenneva Jordan
This blog is for anyone out there who has ever given of himself to help a child. Mother's day isn't just for Mother's . It is a day to honor the giving spirit that dwells in us. It is a day to remember all who helped you grow into the person you are today .
Here are some of a Mother's attributes.
Self sacrifice, giving whole heartily nurturing , caring. Being an activist for the good of mankind. Standing up to bullies , and always doing what is right. Tending to garden's so their children will have food. Becoming temporary nurses to handle fevers and cuts and bruises. Being a finance director trying to stretch a dollar to get through the week. Taking what little food their is and making it into a culinary masterpiece . Making sure everyone in the family had new clothes and wearing the same ones from twenty one years ago, Living in the car for hours as you chauffeur the kids to school and back, to play dates and to all after school activities. Cancelling time out with your friends so you can make sure your children see their friends. Spending hours and hours and hours on housework.
The hardest part of being a Mom is loving someone who hates you at the moment because you only want what is best for them. Having to say No for the good of the family. Telling your children that they are wrong and that you don't like their behavior.
So to all the mom's out there I say this day is for you . Smile knowing the world is a safer much better place because you are here leading the way to tomorrow.
