Mothers are the world’s strongest creatures. They inspire. They enforce. They cherish. They nurture. They love their children enough to say, “No.” And when it comes to walloping their child to prevent them from harm…well, don’t get between them and their cub.
In way back times, a junket to the grocery just required a mother tossing the kids in the backseat and turning up the radio to squash the complaints. Today, a mom going anywhere is right up there with a general maneuvering troops.
This Sunday our country will honor “Moms.” Too bad because that thought should be year round. They deserve our respect, our prayers and our awe.
And for those women who have decided not to have children or weren’t allowed to due to a quirk of nature, let’s celebrate them, too. They are the greatest of Auntie Mame’s, who are the first to step in to buffer the angst that can sometimes develops between munchkins and mums.
If you can’t take your mother to brunch or even thank her, then why not make a donation to an organization in her name.
