Motherhood is the most difficult, most important job in the world for which there are no educational requirements, no licensing, no registration.
I'll also note that, as evidenced by this blog(2), few people have more influence on us...on our lives...than our own Mother. Be that good, bad or indifferent. Our Mothers physically carry us before we are born, and we then mentally carry our Mothers with us for the rest of our lives. Motherhood is, at least by my estimation, the highest calling.
(Around 1970; the blogger is on the far left, with my Mother and two of my brothers)
My hope is that every Mother out there feels appreciated today in some special kind of way.
(1) I've been unfortunately getting up far too early on the weekends. Not sure why. It's along the lines of my eyes peer open and my brain immediately goes full throttle.
(2) I've likely written about my own Mother hundreds of times on this blog.
