Appreciate your mother everyday

A couple of weeks ago I dedicated my “Praise of the Week” to the U.S. military.  I discussed how I thought that our military should be praised more often than during federal holidays, campaign speeches and after successful missions.  This week I am dedicating this post to all the moms of the world.

No it isn’t Mother’s Day.

It isn’t my mom’s birthday.

It isn’t Christmas or any other holiday.

My mom is my hero.  She is the rock of my family.  She has had to play role of both parents after my dad died when I was in elementary school.  She did not succumb to the obstacles of life.  She did not cower from adversity.  She has raised and continues to raise my brothers, sisters and their children.  Like so many mothers, she does so much and doesn’t get the praise she deserves.  She deserves praise every day.  There hasn’t been a day in my life when she wasn’t there for me.  She is selfless, even at times to her detriment.  Always putting everyone else ahead of her needs.

I don’t know what I’d do without her.  I don’t want to even think about.  My mother is like so many other women.  She goes above and beyond what is expected.  The one thing I’ve come to realize about my mom.  The only thing she wants to know.  The thing she cares about the most (aside from our health and happiness).  Is that you care and love her.  That she is appreciated.  That you don’t take her for granted.

So today.

Not on Mother’s Day.

Or on Christmas.

Or on any other holiday.

I ask that you simply thank your mother.  Tell her you love her.  And give her a hug.  Aside from your health and happiness, a child’s love is what mother’s covet the most.

Go hug your mom!
