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:

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. The influence we have on our children can never be underestimated. This influence may be positive or negative but influence them, we do.
