EDITORIAL: Make Every Day A Mother’s Day

So another Mother’s Day is over. But the question this Monday morning is: Is that enough?

If someone asks you work for them without being paid and the job description includes standing up most of the day.

If someone asks you to work seven days a week 365 days a year without any breaks, would you agree to do this? Or would you laugh it off and say you must be crazy?

Well our mothers have and continue to do this. They do this with unconditional love and without any expectation.

They wake up early to prepare food for us every morning and pack lunch – whether we want to eat or not – they still do this. They clean the house and do every other household chore without any complaints.

When you come back home from work or school, she will have tea ready for you as well as a nice dinner waiting for you. Also, call to check up with you if you are late at work or late coming back from wherever you have gone.

As children, many of us would have felt irritated and annoyed by such actions and it might have even seemed as an embarrassment in front of friends.

But if you think of it, they do what they do because of their love for us, their concern for us.

A mother does so many things for us, which we all take for granted. But to imagine life without our mums would be impossible.

Thousands of people around Fiji would have treated their mums yesterday, showering them with gifts, love, dinner, lunch etc to celebrate Mother’s Day.

But why should it take an internationally-recognised day to show appreciation to our mothers? Why can’t we shower them with love and affection every day of our lives?

Don’t other days matter? Imagine if mothers took out only one day in a year to take care of us – their children. How would our lives be?

There are many examples of children out there who neglect their parents – their mothers – ill treat them and do not want to take care of them in their old age.

But what they fail to realise if all that our mothers have done for us – carrying us in their womb for nine month,s which has all sorts of effects on her body and health. Yet they still have so much love to give us.

The most important factor is that children learn from their parents and what you do unto your parents, if what one day your children might end up doing to you.

Learn to love and respect your parents, especially your mothers. They have nothing but love to give in return. Don’t take out a Mothers Day to spend quality time with your mother. Shower her with love daily.

Make every day a Mother’s Day. You will lead a much more satisfied and blessed life.”
