Is Mother’s Day a day off for one’s mom?

                                                Mother’s Day

                                  By Dick Snyder, Perkinsville, New York

Is Mother’s Day a day off for one’s mom? The answer is…yes and no.

Yes… in terms of other family members relieving her of some of her daily physical tasks by helping her to a greater extent than usual.

No…in terms of her motherly concerns for the well-being and happiness of  family members. She finds herself unable to divest herself of these thoughts and emotions even for this one day out of the year…out of her life.

So let us recognize and celebrate her motherhood through a family gathering and by showering her with our words of recognition, praise, and gratitude. Let us also consider treating her with her favorite foods, activities, and beautiful flowers for the loving and beautiful lady that she is. And let us encourage her to be the life of the party on this her special day. Oh, I am aware that she does not pretend to be perfect…neither are we.

I hope you agree that the second Sunday in May is a very special day for a very special lady without which none of us would even be. Aren’t moms awesome?
