Brunches will be filled, flowers delivered, perfumes sprayed, trinkets opened, baubles given, to Mothers being honored for Mother’s Day all over the country. Mothers have so many roles and duties within the family. We are responsible for the physical, psychological and social development of others. We are the therapists, accountants, domestic housekeepers, chefs, gardeners, drivers, C.E.O.s, C.F.O.s, nurses, companions, teachers, fashion consultants, photographers, hair stylists, mediators, IT person, decorators, party planners, spiritual leaders, bakers, confidants, writers, tutors, and lovers. We mothers are everything for so many, and most of the time we do it graciously with a smile. So celebrate the mothers in your life this weekend and let them know how much you appreciate the sacrifices they have made for you.
These are my kid-lets. I will see my son on Sunday and celebrate, Amani is in New York and I see will see her next month.
