Senior Management Position: Experienced mothers only need apply.
What a great task lies ahead for the woman as she bears her child, establishing that special bond for life.
So many challenges, pains and stresses are included in the demanding job description of motherhood. In this fast paced social tempest she will try her hardest and handle the difficult issues to the best of her ability, always with that deep inbred devotion, and with the needed support and love of her family.
What is stronger than a mother's love?
As a child you walked before me, to lead by example. As a teenager you walked behind me looking out for my back and being there when I needed you. As an adult you walk beside me so that, as two friends, we can enjoy life together. Love of Poems.
Washington Irving, "A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
In a sad country song Hank Snow pays honor to his parting mom.
There are friends who'll want you but just for a day
There are pals you think true but they'll cast you away
But there's one loving soul boys I'll sure recommend
Through this old world of sorrow she'll be true till the end. Mother.
If the capabilities required of motherhood were a prerequisite for top corporate management positions wouldn't this be a kinder and happier society?
A bit of history.
Mother's Day holiday, in the United States and Canada, celebrates motherhood generally and the positive contributions of mothers to society. It falls on the second Sunday of each May. It is the result of a campaign by Anna Marie Jarvis (1864–1948), who, following the death of her mother on May 9, 1905, devoted her life to establishing Mother's Day as a national, and later an international, holiday.

Mothers' Day Proclamation by Julia Ward Howe
Boston, 1870. A tribute to mothers and women who had lost their sons in war.
Arise, then, women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be that of water or tears!
Say firmly: "We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies. Our husbands shall not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have taught them of charity, mercy and patience. We women of one country will be too tender of those of another to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."
From the bosom of the devastated earth, a voice goes up with our own. It says, "Disarm, Disarm!"
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice. Blood not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession. As men have often forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail & commemorate the dead. Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesars but of God.
In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.
