A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: “My full name has six letters. The first one is M, and I pick up things. What am I?” When the grades were all in the teacher was astounded to find that almost fifty percent had written in, MOTHER.
Moms are well known for picking up after their children. Nobody lives a more busy and rewarding life than a mother. When the children are second graders mothers are busy picking up toys and clothes. As children age Mothers will find that instead of picking up toys and clothes they may be picking up the pieces of broken hearts and lives.
The love, care and concern a Mother gives never ends. Being a mother is a balancing act of sometimes picking up after children and then knowing when to allow them to pick up after themselves.
