This Sunday is Mother’s Day. You can’t escape the piles of boxes of chocolates or smell of flowers in the stores, and the onslaught of jewelry commercials on television.
French novelist and playwright, Honoré de Balzac, wrote, “The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.”
Ain’t it the truth? When the Boston Marathon bomber’s mother rushed to his defense, people immediately condemned her for advocating his innocence. One can easily argue politics and religion, but I simply chalk it up to her being a mother. It’s just what mothers do.
So what is it that makes a mother a “Mom?” What makes a 210-pound man sheepishly hang him head and say, “Yes Mom,” when told to wipe his feet when he enters the house?
Moms have always held a special place in our society. I remember my father getting out of the car, walking around to the other side, and opening the door for my mother.
There was no doubt who ran our house.
