Today is mother’s day. Every second Sunday of May mothers are to be spoiled, more respected by their loved-ones. Mothers experience in one day the appreciation being the Family Manager.
The way the loved-ones (husband and children) express their appreciation varies from looking after the Breakfast in Bed, gifts or doing mother’s daily chores, only today.
I wonder, why only today. Firstly I don’t think there is any mother in the world who wants something in return from being a mother. As you all know, parent’s love is unconditional.
Secondly, I’m not really fond of commercialization of such events. My most memorable mother’s day gift I got was a simple rhyme from G. She wrote that she didn’t always like what I cooked. She hated it when I was mad at her (of course, raising children is a hell of a job ;-). I am a firm mom. I can’t be an angelic mother all the time), but above all she wrote at the end that loved me because I was her mother for now and always.
Last point on this subject, please remember the divorced mothers or mothers who just can’t get a long with their loved-ones due to some reasons. What do you think they feel today? While most mothers are spoiled to the bone, they wait in vain for some signs from their loved-ones at this mother’s day.
So, for those of you who miss you mother, call her and just ask her this simple question “Mother, how are you today?”
