Evaluating the Return on Investment of your mother


Children make your life important.

Erma Bombeck

Businesses use return on investment, or more commonly referred to as ROI, to evaluate the efficiency of an investment.  The return is based on tangible investments and benefits.  But how does one evaluate the benefits of someone as valuable as your mother?

Can you possibly imagine what your life would have been without her to teach you about life, to inspire you, encourage you, give you values, and do those hundreds of things every day that can easily be taken for granted?

If you had to hire a mom, the required skill set is overwhelming, and all first time moms come in to the role with no previous experience.  The job is 24/7, 365 for the rest of your life, and is often referred to as walking around with your heart outside your body.

As we celebrate Mother’s Day next week, let her put up her feet and give her a warm cup of coffee.  She deserves it!

To all you amazing moms out there, have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
