Mothers Day is all about honoring and respecting mothers. The job of a mother has changed quite a bit over the last century. Mothers were always able to stay at home and take care of the family from there in the past. As the industrial revolution changed things mothers began to work. The growing reliance on dept and keeping up with the Joneses certainly didn’t help. Now many moms have to work to help support the family. As divorce has become far too common there are even more single mothers who must work and take care of the family.
Moms get a lot of attention on Mothers Day, and while I may think some of it is pretty goofy, I definitely believe they deserve our thanks. It says something sad that we have to have a special day for us to really pay attention to and thank our moms.
When I have children I seriously hope my wife can stay home with them. A mothers touch and attention is a great thing and has a huge impact on a child.
My own mother was not able to stay home because she had to work. She still did a great job because she made sure to take time to pay attention to me and keep track of me. As an adult I can look back and realize that what she did has made a huge difference.
Hug your mother today, hug her every chance you get. You never know when it will be your last chance. No matter how many times she failed, she’s human, and she still deserves your thanks.
