This month let us honour our mothers for all that they have done for us.
Let’s honour the sacrifices they made for our well-being over the years; honour the jobs they didn’t take so they could care for us; honour the times they cared for us when we were sick; honour the cheering they did for us when we accomplished; honour the tears they shed in private when we hurt; honour the worry they felt when we came home late; honour the hope they had for us to become capable women.
I am fortunate to still have my mother, Angela. She is 89 years old this month.
She raised five children in a very small house with a ringer washer, no dryer, sewed homemade clothes, fed us home cooking daily and sacrificed so that we could have anything we wanted in our future.
She is physically slowing down but still has tenacity and a strong will to live. I think her strong will has been passed along to this daughter. Happy Mother’s Day Mamma!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there!
