A Day Worthy of Honor: Mother’s Day

This is the month mothers have their designated day to be honored; Mother’s Day. Most would agree that mothers should be honored and appreciated 365 days a year. A mother’s work is never done. At times, mothers are taken for granted. Bald, Bearded, & Blessed wants to take this opportunity to focus on why it’s important to honor mothers and in what ways mothers would like to be honored on Mother’s Day.

Why Should We Honor Mothers on Mother’s Day?

Why should mothers be honored, especially Mother’s Day? This question should be a “no brainer”. However, most people have at some point not recognized their mothers like they should. Although not intentionally, the lack of recognition and honoring mothers can be a subtle thing. Forgetting to say “thank you”, not calling as often, or visiting as much due to taking care of one’s own affairs. Besides giving birth to a child, mothers acquire a myriad of roles throughout their lifetime. None of which they get paid their worth in money to fulfill.
