Happy Mother’s Day
My wife told me that, if a woman were leading our country, the response to this pandemic and efforts to slow its spread would be much better.
I agreed … and not just because I want a “happy wife, happy life.”
It is Mother’s Day Weekend 2020, a time to honor and appreciate the mothers in our lives.
I’ll take that a step further: We should celebrate the women in our lives.
Women, I believe, have better capacity for caregiving, more emotional focus, compassion and — yes, patience.
But those life-giving traits are more realized … are stronger and more impactful when men welcome and give priority to the women in their lives.
(Yeah, I guess you could say I’m also wanting to call this holiday “Wife’s Day.”)
I read an article recently titled, “Women deserve respect, love and care for humanity to bloom.”
I believe that, truly.
Want a strong, enduring relationship with your wife?
Work for it.
Fight for it.
Sacrifice for it.
Mother, girlfriend, wife, spouse, partner … whatever.
This holiday is for us men to remember that our lives are truly enriched by the women in our lives.
Happy Women’s … er Mother’s Day!
