Tomorrow, moms are having their day of appreciation.
It is silly to think that one, single, solitary day out of the year is sufficient enough to thank our moms for everything they have sacrificed to ensure that we grew to the humans were are on this day. From cooking meals to folding clothes and wiping away tears from “ouchies.” Baseball games, Boy Scout outings, birthday parties…. You name it, mom was there coordinating carpools and planning tirelessly to make sure we kids had everything we needed. If our mothers were to list all of their priorities on a sheet of paper you would find that their own interests and wellbeing would more than likely be listed somewhere on the very bottom of that page, if at all.
Moms selflessly give their all to their family 24/7/365 and though no two moms are the same, you will often find that, at their core, they hold the same priorities, values, and aspirations for their children. Of course Mother’s Day is meant for us to show our moms how thankful and fortunate we to have them in our lives, but it should also be all about making sure that, even if for just one day, mom gets to put herself first on that list of priorities.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there! We hope it’s a great one!
