Once again: "thanks mom".....


Yesterday, people everywhere were remembering their mothers. Mother’s Day is celebrated in over 40 countries and became popular in the US in 1912: while some today say it’s too commercialized, one look at Facebook yesterday told a story of remembrances that, in some cases, were akin to veneration. Things our mothers told us as kids still resonate today: like ‘this hurts me more than it hurts you’, and ‘I’m only doing this for your own good’. More seriously, they taught us to stand up straight, wash our hands and generally be more agreeable and presentable. My mom died more than 4 years ago, just shy of her 94thbirthday: I can still hear her advice in my head and feel her love in my heart. And like all of our mothers, she encouraged and supported me to be the best example of myself. Take a page from the Mother’s Playbook and help others to be their best today
