Yes, mothers do pick up things. But they are much more than "magnets," gathering up clothes and picking up toys around the house. As willing as many mothers are to do such chores, they have a higher calling than that.
A good mother loves her family and provides an atmosphere where each member can find acceptance, security, and understanding. She is there when the children need a listening ear, a comforting word, a warm hug, or a loving touch on a fevered brow.
The kind of mother deserves to be honored-not just on one special day a year but every day. And that recognition should involve more than words; it ought to be shown in respect, thoughtfulness, and loving deeds.
This is a personal opinion shared by Richard De Haan written in "our daily bread" book.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS IN THE WHOLE WORLD!
