Did you know that Mother’s day is celebrated at different times of the year around the world? Here in the US, we rejoice and celebrate our Moms in May. In the UK, Ireland and Nigeria, they celebrate it today. In many other parts of the world, we find that Mother’s Day dates run the gamut from January/March in Israel, to February in Norway through December in Panama and Indonesia; every month has a country that celebrates our Moms. .

As baby sitter
And dry-cleaner, she does all
healer, hairdresser … more

She’s pediatrician
She’s cook, musician and housemaid
too… Works all with love

We know that everyday should be a day to honor our Moms and all are days to stop and reflect on the blessings of birth. As kids, many of us didn’t really stop to think about the challenges of parenting. We loved Mom when she was good to us and didn’t when she disciplined us. But in many instances, we went about our days caught up in other thoughts and dreams., Some Moms were abusive of their kids and some cherished every step their children took, all came to the job with minimal training and either copied their own experiences or created new ones. One thing we know, is that most moms had good intentions for their kids and even when they failed, they were trying to do right. Some moms had mental health challenges and their actions were cruel but please know that somewhere deep inside their brains, something wanted to do good. Be the better example and forgive the hard times. Happy Mother’s Day!
