Mothers don't get enough credit.
I'm not talking about the women that have babies.... I'm talking about the MOTHERS that take care of their children and sacrifice everything for their children. During this fathers day weekend I saw so many posts and pictures and everything else talking about good fathers that stay and take care of their children and don't get me wrong , I think it is an awesome thing when a real man stays and takes care of their kids, not because the law says they have to or anything else, but because they are real men. But that got me thinking about all the mothers out there that are mother and father to their children.
People ask me why I celebrate fathers day even though I never knew my dad , I tell them I do know my dad, my mom and my dad just happen to be the same person. When my dad left when I was a baby my mother took on his role , which could not have been easy considering she worked a job to pay the rent , went to college to be a nurse , and cleaned the school to pay for me and my sisters tuition at a private school, at the same time. She never complained about it she just did what she needed to do to make sure we were taken care of. She never jumped into another relationship and looked for another man to take care of her children , she handled that all by herself. I could not have asked for a better mother.
I know there are more women out there like her and they deserve alot more credit.
I posted this because of a conversation I had with a guy at work and he told me I shouldn't have to celebrate fathers day with my mother because that was her job to do everything she did fore me and my sister. It really irritated me that he thought that considering all the women out there that jump from man to man looking for someone to take care of their children instead of stepping up and doing it theirself.
It takes a real man to be a dad.... But it takes an even better woman to be a mom and a dad !!!
