Happy Labour's Day to all Mothers

I read in Wikipedia that Labour Day is an annual holiday celebrated all over the world that resulted from efforts of the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.

Well, I must say all Mothers certainly qualify as workers who contribute to the economic and social development of young people. Yet these workers (Mothers) do not get an annual holiday. Oh dear.

All mothers, whether its WM, SAHM, WAHM, etc or whatever names it is we mothers call ourselves, we all work very hard. But there is no annual day of rest. No, we Mothers never rest. Not even when we are asleep. We are watchful and wakeful at the slightest sound or movement. We are always there to labour on and on and on for those we love.

"We don't have a stop button because our love is always on."

I borrowed this wonderful phrase from this Mother's Day Poem by Sonya Covert.

Happy Labour's Day to all Mothers!
