For me personally, everyday is Mother’s Day. I cook, clean, wash, do homework and take care of all that needs to be taken care of everyday. So I want my hugs and show of appreciation everyday. On the day that is designated “Mother’s Day” around the world, I would love to receive flowers and be treated extra special – for example, breakfast in bed and to be pampered for the whole day where my every whim and fancy will be catered too by husband and son.
There is a saying that says “look at how a man treats his mother and that will give you an indication as to how he will treat you”. It is all about respect. I will not tolerate disrespect from anyone including my son and husband. I try to teach my son about making life choices and dealing with the consequences of those choices. The days of beating a child to get them to do what you want them to do is over. Take away the things that they love the most ie computer, psp, ipod etc.
Anyway, here is a Mother’s Day Poem for all Mothers out there. Have a wonderful day on Sunday.
