Yesterday was Mother Day, I know this is a day late, but I think is important to point out the obvious when it comes to the day that celebrates the woman who gave us life.
My mother is a hard working lady who was a working mom back in an era when they were looked down upon.
Women who did two jobs, raising the family and bringing in an income.
When the ladies of the neighbourhood were out enjoying coffee at 4pm my mom was coming home from the costmesmics plant and starting dinner.
She didn’t have time for socializing.
She wouldn’t put her feet up until it was time to watch the 11pm news, then back up at 6am.
My wife is very similar, puts in a full day’s work and is still the perfect mother.
Often there isn’t enough hours in the day.
Where is the balance? There is none.
It inevitable, it comes out of her half, and that’s why she is a great mom.
I’m Scott Thompson.
