In a recent post, I wrote about the powerful role played by a mother in influencing her family and her children in particular. It was therefore with considerable interest that I read a recent article in the New York Times by Thomas L. Friedman called ” Call Your Mother”.
I was quite touched by the article. It underscored the following points to me:
- Make time for the relationships you value. When we are too “busy” we tend to lose sight of these and give them less priority then they deserve
- Taking things for granted makes us value people and things around us much less than we ought to. Often we miss them the most only when they are not around.
- The influence we have on our children can never be underestimated. This influence may be positive or negative but influence them, we do.
