Whether writers of fiction, poets, artists, assembly line workers, teachers, or housewives (insert your or your mother’s occupation here, of course), the role of our mothers in our lives will never be insignificant.
So, here’s to mothers everywhere!
Just so you know, it’s customary to wear a white carnation or buy them for your mother today. It symbolizes the purity of a mother’s love.
Another tidbit? The founder of Mother’s Day advocated (read: fought violently) for it to be rescinded when it became too commercial.
What are you doing for your mother today? What have your kids done for you?
Who are your favorite/least favorite mothers in literature and why?
