Motherhood — the Oldest Profession

By Micki Peluso, author of “…And the Whippoorwill Sang

This Sunday mother’s throughout the country will be honored in many and various ways. Toddlers and preschool children will cheerfully drag their mothers to their favorite fast food places and older children will escort them, with great decorum, to restaurants with actual dinnerware. The majority of children will serve their mothers breakfast in bed, a calamitous tradition that refuses to die. Adult children with children of their own will have greater reverence for their mothers, graced with understanding and empathy. Mothers will righteously accept the presents, cards, flowers and candy, and promises of exemplary behavior in the future. She has always and will continue to deserve the esteem bestowed upon her by her family on this one honored day of each year…

Awakenings is honored to again feature the prolific writings of Micki Peluso, author of “…And the Whippoorwill Sang.”
