While males are usually more important in real life, without women like my mom, people would have never existed at all! Most people think that dads are better, with bigger muscles and lots of other things, but if you think about it, if you didn’t have a mom you wouldn’t be born! Most people think that women are simply ‘lesser’ than men, but my mom could be better than most. Who knows? Perhaps one day humankind will think women are greater than men!
One of my favorite memories with my mom was going biking along the beach. The air was lukewarm, and the sky was clear. There was little wind, and the sun stretched over the sea. I peddled close to the river, with my mom at my side. We chatted a bit, and then she asked me to tell her about a book I had recently finished. I had told her the first half the first time we biked here, and now she wanted me to finish it.
“Do you remember the part where Ryland met an alien spacecraft?” I asked.
“Yes,” She replied.
And I continued with the story.
“Today is a fine day,” she said.
“Yes,” I agreed.
“The wind is taking a nap, and the sun has just woken up.”
“I thought you like the sun,” I said, confused.
“Oh, yes, but then it gets too hot,” she replied.
“I see.” I repeated the catchphrase of my friend, Carol.
“The air is cool, and the birds are singing,” she continued, as if I had not interjected at all.
Indeed it was a beautiful day. We talked some more, then headed home. Most people don’t recognize how important women are, until you realize you would have never existed without your mom.
