As we grow older we begin to understand the true sacrifice that our mom’s make. It’s much more than just the cost of registration and driving you to games. It’s having to get the whole family out of bed for early morning practices (with 3 younger brothers and sisters and dad working shift-work this just about did it for my mom), it’s about spending weekends away in some crummy motel in the middle of no-where. As the great one put it.....it’s about not being able to go on vacation, not being able to buy something for the house because extra income is all going towards hockey and hockey related activity.
“Score a goal, play hard, and thank dad, but really acknowledge your mom! Find a way to thank her that is personable, make it real, and make it count, and you might just have made it all worth her while!”
