As the world celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May every year, it is time we looked into what goes into the making of this symbol of pure love.
As a resort to understanding what makes mothers special, I realized that an important aspect of motherhood is communication.
Mothers teach children how to deal with everyday life. They teach children how to communicate. They are taught words and told when to listen. This amounts to verbal communication.
Mothers watch as their child draws the first doodle, and helps them to write while they are in school. They understand their child’s unspoken words and understand what it is going through. This amounts to non-verbal communication.
So in the end of it all, when you look at the whole concept of motherhood, you begin to realize that the epitome of effective communication essentially begins with the mother!
We wish all women a Happy Mother’s Day, and celebrate their ability to make a difference to tomorrow by being here today; for the countless opportunities and the infinite challenges that make them what they are!
“A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.”
