To all the mother’s out there,
You are teachers, therapists, and role models. You help us all to do better, you pick us up when we are down, and kiss it better when we are hurt. You are chef’s, designers, and tutors. You change diapers. You persevere for those you love. You sacrifice your time. The love you carry in your heart for those in your charge never seems to end. Quite literally, none if us would be here if it wasn’t for you, and that works figuratively too.
Simply put, if it were not for Mother’s we Fathers wouldn’t have a chance to be Fathers, and for that I thank you. I thank you for the example you set, and the standard of parenting you have established. And most of all I thank you for being a Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day.
P.S. did I mention you also hunt for bugs, even though you hate bugs!
