If there’s one thing everybody has, it’s a mother. While you might resent the greeting card companies and the flower businesses for putting pressure on you, there is something universal about loving your mother. Even the most hardened criminal loves his mother. After all, there is no insult so powerful as one that insults his mother.
Mom’s are the first people who teach us right from wrong. If you look at it that way, they are the basis of our society. How can we not value that?
We might give mom a gift on Mother’s Day, but we are really reaching out to her to let her know how much she means to us. Mother’s Day or any day, a hug and an “I love you, Mom” go a long way. And if you are not near enough to to see her often, please phone her. Keep her in your life because she gave so much to you.
