Mother’s Day – Sunday May 13

Did you need a reminder that Sunday May 13th is Mother’s Day?  You still have time to thank her  for caring for you.

Reed B Markham clearly understands the role of a mother when he said that thoughtful mothers recognize that the joy of raising children comes in the daily journey, not in reaching a specific destination. Mothers are great for helping their young children activate their curiosity and is a child’s first creative teacher and give birth to a child’s dreams and are really the dream makers. He believed that every successful child is the product of an enthusiastic mother. Great mothers live lives of quiet optimism and hope. They recognize the unique talents each of their children possesses and provide opportunities for their children to enhance their unique talents and share them with the world.  A mother who knows makes sure their children are learning in a supportive rather than threatening environment. He also said that a  nurturing mother can get us to accomplish great achievement from a supportive environment. 

We are all a result of every experience and at this point, we choose to be the person we are and determine whether we like the person in the mirror looking back at us. Our experiences and who we are is a product of good (and sometimes not so much) nurturing mothers.

Take the time to let her know you appreciate her, let her know you understand how much she sacrificed, gave us the opportunities to use our talents, skills and follow our dreams. Send her a gift, flowers, a thank you note. If you haven’t seen her in a while, take the time to visit her.
