Monday Moans: It doesn’t have to be a holiday…

Easy as A, B, C . . . from CC

I hope everyone had a good Mother’s Day last Sunday. I know I did.

Why is there a day to show Mom that you love her? It’s a nice thought, but it’s flawed. The day is a holiday where some moms get acknowledgement and others are feeling pain. Some have lost children… children moving across the country… estrangement… or death.  I say celebrate mothers every day with letting them know how you feel, positively, with notes…pictures… calls… often. Don’t wait for a holiday to tell her you love and appreciate her.

Now another subject all together: don’t tell her you love her on Mother’s Day and the next day blow up and say mean, horrible things, that may or may not be true. Enough people in the world tear us down. Why should it be our children? We look strong on the outside because we stand for our families, but we are not robots. We have feelings, and words hurt us more when they’re from our own children. We love and value your opinions. Make those good…happy…joyful words. You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar. Treat us as you would like to be treated. Honor your mother and father, someone of importance once said.

Mothers: do the same for your daughters… sons… in-laws… grandparents… aunts and uncles. Lead by example and remember even our grown children say things they wish they hadn’t. Forgive them and hold them dear. Mistakes are made by all and we are not to judge. I believe someone of importance once said that also.

See you day-after-tomorrow for Wednesday’s WIPs

    Thank you for your post. This made me feel a lot better about my Mother’s Day.

  2. Thanks, Alena—it probably made ALL of us feel better about ours as well!
