"Honor thy father and thy mother." Exodus 20:12
In the Judeo-Christian traditions, their sacred scriptures say to "honor thy father and thy mother". We all do not have to be religious to see the wisdom in this prose. Our parents gave us life, raised us, sheltered us, care for us, set our moral compasses, loved us. It is only right that we honor them.
This Mother's Day, take time to thank Mom - hug her, cook her dinner, take her out on the town. Show Mom how much she means to you and how much you appreciate all she does for you.
