Happy Mother’s Day

Curriculum of a Mom…
Is 24/7

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!

Happy Mother’s Day

Whether you work at home or outside the home, a mother’ job is never done. Even when the kids grow up and fly the coop, they are still “kids” to their moms. So this Women’s History Month, don’t forget to celebrate the women who raised you, nurtured you, loved you and cared about your well-being. It’s been a long road but we will all get there. Be loved and inspired!

    More than celebrating Mother’s Day, I think we should have it in our hearts to express love & show gratitude to our moms every day ( even if they drive us crazy on most times, lol ) .. they’re prolly one of the most selfless human beings. I cannot imagine my life without my Mom. She is my first teacher, my best friend, the best cook, a shoulder to cry on – she’s such a strong person and I really look up to her.
