I read that Mother’s Day isn’t Mothers’ Day because we’re supposed to acknowledge our own families, not mothers in general. It’s amazing how grammar works, and how an extra letter can change the scope and meaning of a word.
My mom has told me about some of the thankless tasks her parents helped her with when she was a young mom. My grandfather said she’d pay their favors back someday by helping me and her grandchildren. And she has. I don’t know what I’d do without her!
Thanks, Mom, for all that you do, and I’ll be thinking about you and Grandpa years from now when my kids call me for help with their families.
I hope all the mamas and mamas-to-be out there enjoy today!
