Whether it’s from literally giving birth, to you to raising you, to fixing meals and sewing for clothes for you and providing you a home or taking care of you emotionally, that’s a lot of work. Day in day out, for their entire lifetime. Moms can’t help it. Moms are moms. And they work darned hard, often in the background making things work in ways you don’t even notice. They lay the groundwork for your early life, and your early life is the groundwork for your entire life. This is not even remotely an exaggeration.
