Remember mothers on their day

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — For children early in life, these women are a connection to a larger world, and it may take years to recognize that mothers also have other roles in that world. Mothers may have jobs and other relationships to foster.

And mothers’ roles and responsibilities change somewhat as children become adults and parents themselves.

For each of us, the definition of motherhood is different, and if nothing more, Mother’s Day is a reminder of what “mother” has meant through the years from childhood to adulthood.

There are millions of mothers, and there are millions of ways to acknowledge Mom on Mother’s Day. If time escapes us on other days of the year, today is the day to express appreciation to Mom.
