Long known for our outspoken and bold editorial voice, the Sunday News today endorses, wait for it, mothers.
Mothers are not only the greatest thing since sliced bread, they actually buy the bread and make the sandwiches. If you’re extra nice, they may even cut off the crusts.
Mothers rank right up there with apple pie, which they also make, if you’re lucky.
Long before there was Uber, there was Mom’s car to take you to your friend’s house or to piano practice or to school (remember school?) if you missed the bus (remember the bus?). When you were old enough, Mom might teach you how to drive and then, if you were still being good, let you borrow her car.
Mom can mend torn pants as well as broken hearts and her warmth can bring down a high temperature in no time.
Mom isn’t biased. She knows for a fact just how fine a son or daughter you are, and that goes double for her grandchildren. Which is another reason why you might want to do something special for her today. If you’re lucky, she may watch the kids for you this week.
