The greatest role of a mother is to supply the needs of her children and nurture them with love and care to make them grow healthy, confident and strong. In areas like in African countries mothers extensively performed that duty, with drought and lack of food in their community they end up sacrificing the food that they should be eating, instead they give it to their children. In some part of Middle East, women embraces danger particularly mothers every time they gather fire woods in the dessert which they use for cooking meals. Some of them die because of dehydration due to the scorging heat of the sun, others by snake bites and wild animals and some is through violance which the culprits are the rebels hiding in the dessert. This is the real situation among women as they continue surviving not only for themselves but for their family.
For every dollar or peso we spend on buying expensive gifts, chocolates and bouquet of flowers, that particular amount can be more helpful to at least 4-5 mothers. I don't want to be a kill joy by posting this blog entry. All I wanted is giving a bigger opportunity for others on how they can maximize Mother's Day to make it meaningful.
