We all know that everyone in the whole universe came to life from their mother's womb with the exception of Adam and Jesus (peace be upon them). Thus, there is a very special status for mothers out there as they are truly the glue that keeps the family together and give love, attention, and care for her children.
If you are sick, hungry, or feeling stressed or just simply want to talk about what happened at school or at your job you rush to your mom. If you can't go to sleep or had a bad dream that woke you up, you will call for your mother to come and comfort you and so on.
We will never do justice to our mothers by celebrating her on just one day or just take her out to dinner once a year, but, everyday should be filled with honoring mothers for their endless contributions whether they are living with us or if they have passed on. To appreciate their non-stop giving of unconditional love to their children.
My Mother had a great impact on my upbringing and in choosing medicine as a profession to help mankind. She stayed up with me late at night to study for my exams and prayed for my success and happiness. I owe her a lot as all what I have accomplished was due to her prayers that God has answered.
Now I see a new focused marketing campaign to target women and mothers as they are considered the main decision-makers for health care choices for the family. And thus, they will be reached out to by major insurance companies, hospitals and providers to secure their market share. It would be great to give all hard working mothers a break, especially in the middle class situation as they struggle to make ends meet. This is usually the case for single-mom families to make healthcare really affordable would really help them out.
The mothers put everybody in the families needs ahead of her own needs including healthcare needs. She may not even have any coverage as she would be faced with tough choices whether to put food on the table or to provide healthcare coverage. And if she collapses the family collapses, and thus this is our society.
Our Low-Cost Quality Healthcare Program has a unique component of our social responsibility, giving back to the community and we are certainly looking forward to helping so many hard-working mothers, not just on Mother's Day but rather on a continuous basis to save her a bunch and at least take away some of the heavy burden placed on her shoulders to care for the whole family.
