As a husband and son of mothers who embody all of the Mother’s Day quotes that are floating around social media, I can wholeheartedly write that despite all the nice quotes and dark chocolate and special days of the year, there is still an honor-gap for moms.
Think about it. When someone is successful we talk about their education, their career path, their pedigree and even their own ability to pull up their own boot straps. I’m not sure what boot straps are, but I’d bet a chocolate bar that their mom is the one who showed them how to pull them up.
So, to put it simply, I’m encouraging you to honor a Mother. Your mom, someone else’s mom, a mother in our Mothers’ Clubs, the mother of your kids … or all of the above. But keep in mind that it is going to take more than words to pay this mom the honor she deserves. In fact, it’s going to take more than Mother’s Day. As people, let’s pay more attention and give more tribute to moms every day. Think about it like this, none of us would be here without them.
President Abraham Lincoln put it like this, “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
