Well, we just had another Mother’s Day. And now that it has come and gone, I want to ask this question: Why should we have only one Mother’s Day each year?
Mothers are a very important part of everyone’s life. They are really the strongest part of our civilization.
They are the ones who carry the child for nine months before the rest of us get to see him or her. They man the home, keeping everything clean and the pantries full by doing the grocery shopping. They are there when the child goes to bed and when the child gets up in the morning. They are there if a child stays out too late.
They are there to hug you when you are tired or ill. They are there to be the one to clean up the wounds or give medicine. And they are there to cook the food, clean up afterward and put everything away for another day. They are our doctor, nurse and minister in the home. They are there when the father leaves for work and when he comes home.
In other words, mothers are so much a part of the life you and I live and look forward to.
Back in World War II, they took over filling the spots the soldiers left to go to war. They proved to the world that things can go on without a hitch while their men were fighting the war to keep us free. Women all over the United States proved to the world that American women are resourceful enough to keep everything, including keeping house, the same as it was before.
Yes, according to Uncle Ray, the women who are mothers have done a great job in keeping things status quo.
I remember our mother, who was not only a great person but the best mother in the world for us in our family. Man, could she cook, and didn’t those hugs feel good when she got you off to bed and when you left for school? Our mother cooked like it was a gift.
