With Mother’s Day around the corner I want to talk about the deeds moms do daily. Mothers — everybody has one. In the United States we have an entire day honoring them.
Some are great, some aren’t. I have an exceptional one.
My mother is someone I could talk about for pages and only scrape the surface of all the things she does. I will take you through her day. She wakes up at 6:15 in the morning so she can pack lunch for me and my brother, wake us up and make us breakfast all before 7:30 am. After dropping my brother and then me off at school, she goes grocery shopping. She then goes home, puts away the groceries, and loads the laundry into the washer.
As the laundry is running in the washer she cleans the kitchen, cleaning the mess from breakfast. She then gets a well-deserved break but even while she relaxes for those precious few minutes she is cutting coupons, doing taxes, paying bills, or folding laundry depending on the day.
Then it is time for lunch, after which she prepares food for my father who has many eating restrictions. She then cleans another room of our eternally messy home, reschedules doctor appointments to avoid’ extra-curriculars, puts dinner in the oven, and is right there waiting to meet me at carpool at 4:45. And that is only 10 ½ hours of her day.
I won’t even go into what happens after I get home.
All I have to say is that on Mother’s Day, do something express your gratitude towards your mom, your family superhero.
