Some observations on Mothers Day… from a daddy….
If we had to hire a mama… a half million dollars a year would not pay for the job that ranges from seamstress to psychologist….to teacher… custodian…and purchasing manager.
New mothers…. forget a clean house for the next thirteen years. Your friends will understand there are more important things than Swifter patrol. And if they don’t … don’t worry about it.
Read all the books you want about motherhood. But there’s one most important book…. yeah….that Book.
And speaking of reading….read to your child… get dad to read to them, too.
Try to teach love for family and respect for family members. And you teach it best by example.
Most problems will pass with a peaceful resolution. A wise man once told me the best medicine is tincture of time.
The hardest thing to learn is when to dive in… or when to let your children learn to swim in the waters of life.
And one piece of advice my wife passed on to our children. She says… when our kids were very, very young… she started praying for the man or woman they would marry.
Relish the time. It passes quickly…and before you know it.. you will be tearfully wondering what to do with the extra bedroom….. and listening to the ticking of a clock in a quiet home.
Unsolicited…. but absolutely free advice.
Oh… and even if all the cards are gone from the shelf… there’s a telephone… and “I love you” goes a long way on Sunday… or any day for that matter.
