For all the mothers

Dear Editor:

For all the mothers

Dear Editor:

What does it mean to be a mother?

From the very beginning, a mother accepts the most dedicated responsibility, that of being a mother. What is the meaning of the word mother? She is a teacher, a nurse, a homemaker and a guiding counsel for the growth of her child. She does it by instinct; it is a part of her. No matter what life brings, she is there.

What does it mean to have a mother?

Let’s call her Mom. The word itself illustrates a bond between two persons from a birth attachment. From the very beginning, she is the closest to you. Each word you speak, each step you take, she takes your dependence on her in her stride.

She puts a bandage on your scratches, combs or brushes your hair, reads you stories and watches you grow from childhood to teenager to adulthood. Your successful achievements are her greatest accomplishment. She does it with pride as a part of her life. She is Mom.

What can we do for our mothers, our Mom?

We can research our memories of all the nice things she did for us, regardless of the issues. She had an unconditional, understanding affection for us. Now perhaps it is our turn to tend to her needs. Maybe they are small and insignificant, but our own expression of recognition will mean a great deal to her.

What can we do for her? Take her to the grocery, the doctor, the hairdresser, to church or perhaps to a restaurant for a treated meal. The most meaningful thing we can do is to have good communication. We all have busy lives, but let’s not forget Mom.

Love for mother

If we can demonstrate our love for Mom, we can be sure it is reciprocated in her unconditional love for us. Put your arm around your Mom and say, “Happy Mother’s Day!”

Karlan Hale

Greensburg

Editor’s Note: Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11, 2014.
