With everyone taking the time to express there appreciation for their mom’s it’s only right that we take it a step further and think about who we are, what we represent and how we behave in the spirit of the woman who birthed us. Would our mother’s be proud of the man we’ve selected to share our life with? Would she be pleased on the examples we are setting for our daughters? Are we living up to the full potential we know our mothers have equipped us with? If you can’t say yes to any of these questions than I think it’s time to make a change and begin to honor thy mother.
You see Mother’s day is more than just a holiday in May when we have the chance to shower our mother’s with the best and tell her how much she means to us. It’s also about honoring your mother through exemplifying the lessons and jewels she instilled in you. We know our mother’s are always going to be there for us regardless if we are doing bad or good, but we also know if we want to make her happy and proud we must project the good she has taught us. Living by example is the best way to do that. I know we are all grown and have developed our own sense of self, but let’s not go into the world acting like mama raised a fool. Let’s not do anything that will embarrass our mother or shame our daughters.
So woman to woman, on this Mother’s Day let’s not only give thanks to our mami’s but live our lives in honor of her.
